Subject Re: Any tools to convert log messages to log events
Date Sat, 23 Feb 2013 00:37:43 GMT
Not in the configuration as yet.   However, I've implemented a couple of "servers" that are
independent "main programs" that can receive log events.  I am assuming that the main difference
is that the receiver would not be a main but would be embedded in the application.  

Where are they documented?
