package syslog

import "github.com/juju/syslog"

Package syslog provides a simple interface to the system log service. It can send messages to the syslog daemon using UNIX domain sockets, UDP or TCP.

Only one call to Dial is necessary. On write failures, the syslog client will attempt to reconnect to the server and write again.
