       logsave [ -asv ] logfile cmd_prog [ ... ]


       The  logsave program will execute cmd_prog with the speci­
       fied argument(s), and save a copy of its  output  to  log­
       file.   If  the  containing directory for logfile does not
       exist, logsave will accumulate the output in memory  until
       it  can be written out.  A copy of the output will also be
       written to standard output.

       If cmd_prog is a single hyphen ('-'), then instead of exe­
       cuting  a  program, logsave will take its input from stan­
       dard input and save it in logfile

       logsave is useful for saving the output  of  initial  boot
       scripts until the /var partition is mounted, so the output
       can be written to /var/log.


       -a     This option will cause the output to be appended to
              logfile, instead of replacing its current contents.

       -s     This option will cause logsave to skip  writing  to
              the  log  file  text which is bracketed with a con­
              trol-A (ASCII 001 or Start of Header) and control-B
              (ASCII 002 or Start of Text).  This allows progress
              bar information to be visible to the  user  on  the
              console, while not being written to the log file.

       -v     This option will make logsave to be more verbose in
              its output to the user.
