Subject Re: mod_log-any/3713: Piped Error Logs spawn extra process(es)

Dean,

    I was actually using a hacked version of rotatelogs--I just
    sent the simple item as an example.

    The rotatelogs.c file in the distribution should be updated to
    handle this, or if exec would work for it as well, examples
    of it with the ....Log directive should be updated to show
    the exec.

    Because we didn't understand this, we chose not to use piped
    logging in our current release.  With this knowledge, we may
    revisit this issue at a later time,

thanks very much for the info,
sam
