I've read the man pages(syslog, syslog.conf) several times and cannot figure out how I would use normal programs/processes(The one I want at the moment is Nmap) to output std err/in/out.
I'm not sure if it can be done.
As for as I know you can only use the subsystems provided i.e. mail, auth, etc.
^ This is were my confusion is ^
As a temporary fix I have cron running a Nmap scan when called and then I'm using cron as a facility for syslog.
By the way it doesn't have to use the deprecated syslog, any of it's descendants will do.
