ok, let's put this to rest:
- YES, i've read the man page.
- YES, it does give me a pointer. the pointer essentially says that
syslogd-listfiles decides when a log should be rotated based on its
entry in /etc/syslogd.conf. this was made clear very early on in
the man page (and in my first email today).
- to do what i want to do requires that log file rotation periodicity
be decided independently of /etc/syslog.conf entry.
it's entirely possible that (a) what i'm trying to do is supported by
syslogd-listfiles, but i don't know what i'm doing; (b) what i'm
trying to do is too stupid for words; or (c) it's a reasonable thing
to want, but syslogd-listfiles does not support it. i believe (c) is
seriously though, i'll wait a little while to see what the debian-user
community comes up with. personally, i trust that if there is a
coorect way to do this, someone on debian-user knows it. if not, then
i'll file an enhancement request with the sysklogd package.
