uncat - continuously reads stdin, splits up the data either by timeout
or number of bytes read to process it
uncat [ -v ] [ -o ] [ -t seconds
] [ -s size ] prog
uncat continuously reads stdin and repeatedly
processes the data either after seconds timeout or maximal number of bytes
size read. To process the data, uncat starts prog and feeds the data into
prog's standard input. prog's standard output is redirected to standard error.
uncat never writes to standard output.
prog consist of one or more arguments.
If prog exits non-zero, uncat prints an error message, discards the data
and continues to read stdin.
Note that uncat is not crash proof.
used to run the socklog-notify service.
If uncat receives a TERM signal,
it starts to process the data in memory and exits as soon as possible.
- verbose. Print verbose messages
- once. Exit on end of input. Normally uncat continues waiting
for data on standard input, even on end of file.
- -t seconds
- timeout. Set the
timeout to seconds seconds. Default is 300.
- -s size
- Set the maximal number
of bytes to size. Default is 1024.
also does this on end of input if the -o option was given.
returns 0 after receiving a TERM signal. uncat returns 111 on error.
