Oh really? I would very much like to hear what those "undesirable properties" are. AIUI, datagrams are specified as unreliable, which is exactly what you *don't* want when logging, so it beats me why people would ever prefer SOCK_DGRAM over SOCK_STREAM. I suspect the answer is close to "because traditional syslogd is easier to implement with datagrams", which I do not hold in much regard. -- Laurent
