If want to log full utf-8 strings “emoji’s” use the option
-8, example on
The optiosn are:
-s Operate in secure mode. Do not log messages from remote machines. If specified twice, no network socket will be opened at all, which also disables logging to remote machines. -C Create log files that do not exist (permission is set to 0600). -8 Tells syslogd not to interfere with 8-bit data. Normally syslogd will replace C1 control characters (ISO 8859 and Unicode characters) with their “M-x” equivalent. Note, this option does not change the way syslogd alters control characters (see iscntrl(3)). They will always be replaced with their “^x” equivalent.
