openlog() and facility parameter

P: n/a
Stu
Can somebody please explain what the facility paramter is in the
openlog() system call.

void openlog(const char *ident, int logopt, int facility);

The solaris man page says this:

The facility argument encodes a default facility to be assigned
to all messages that do not have an explicit facilty already
encoded. The initial default facility is LOG_USER.

But what does this mean ?

Thanks in advance for all that answer this post.

Sorry, but you got the wrong newsgroup here, there is no
openlog() function in standard C, the topic of this group.
You better ask in a Solaris-specific group or at least one
dedicated to UNIX programming, e.g. comp.unix.programmer.

Regards, Jens
