Discussion

The SYN_REPORTEVENT routine enables a Synergy program to report errors and other information to the system log (the event log on Windows, syslog on UNIX, or the operator console on OpenVMS). It is most beneficial when used by services or detached programs.

Examples

xcall syn_reportevent(D_EVENTLOG_ERROR_TYPE, "My program had an error")
