intercepting console messages

intercepting console messages

Post by Marquis de Sa » Thu, 02 Jul 1992 03:09:07

hello there. im running on a sparc and im looking for a way to intercept
messages coming to /dev/console ... (what im _really_ trying to do is scan to
see if anyone sends me a talk request)... any suggestions?
thanks in advance

           if it _feels_ good, then it _is_ good..

1. Intercepting console messages without disabling the console

I want to monitor a console on HP-UX 9.04 system without rendering
the console unusable. Currently HP-UX 9.04 does have a facility to
capture MOST messages via syslog but unfortunately some UNIX programs
and third party applications write directly to /dev/console. These
are the nasties I need to capture.

Any help would be greatly appreciated......
