exigrep - program to extract information from exim logs
exigrep [-l? pattern [logfile?
exigrep is a Perl script, provided in the util
directory, that extracts from one or more log files all
entries relevant to any message whose log entries contain at
least one that matches a given pattern. The pattern match is
case-insensitive. Thus one can search for all mail for a
given user or a given host, for example. If no logfiles are
specified, standard input is assumed.
The -l flag means 'literal', that is, treat all
characters in the pattern as standing for themselves.
Otherwise the pattern must be a Perl regular expression. If
no file names are given on the command line, the standard
input is read.
The -l flag means 'literal', that is, treat all characters
in the pattern as standing for themselves
