Originally written by Pete Hatch, this is a nice, simple, direct interface to the Unix syslog() API. Look at the class side example methods of Syslog for some starter examples.

There are many man pages and google hits for the syslog utility. In short, you're going to able to watch a syslog.0 file on your system (perhaps found in /var/log or /var/run/log). It handles redundant line reduction, as well as log rotation. It works on both Unixes and OS X. No idea if anyone has made the API available under Windows.
