No. Piping is also a *nix only feature (as far as I know).
To enforce my claim here is the quotation from the same log manual page :

Section : Error Log
URL : 

"On unix systems it is also possible to have the server send errors to
syslog or pipe them to a program."

Now this is more interesting.
What does "off-line post-processing" stands for ? (Just don't tell me
what I think it says - to stop the server).

Thank you.
