Save log files in a nice way
savelogs is a flexible and robust log file archival system. Its logic is simple move rename the log file, filter data from the log file, store the log file in an archive via tar or gtar, and compress the archive via gzip or compress. After successful compression, the original log file is deleted.
All of the above phases are optional. This means that you may simply delete files if you wish. Or you may simply compress existing log files. Or you may move files and add them to a tar file but leave the tar file uncompressed, etc. You pick ;o
savelogs has many options yet retains a high degree of dwimitude.
