Subject Re: An idea for error logging
Date Wed, 04 Sep 1996 16:43:20 GMT
  How about if ErrorLog is set to /dev/null having Apache simply not
  open an ErrorLog and ignoring any calls to print anything to it?

No saving --- an open() of /dev/null still takes a file descriptor.
In any case, saving only *one* file descriptor is not likely to be 
significant (though, if you've got numerous virtual hosts with
separate error logs, going to a common error log probably would make
a difference --- one fd vs. many).
