Change Logfile output type?

Dec 12, 2015 at 10:24 PM

Is there an internal flag I can set that would allow writing logfiles as straight ASCII, rather than UTF8 (or whatever it is)?

I would like to do some analysis of those monster logfiles using Linux scripting and having straight ASCII to work with would simplify the problem significantly.

(I have figured out how to convert, but its more time and disk space, and my conversion script still hiccups occasionally ;-) )

Thanks for any ideas,

Sorry no only UTF8, but you can write a script to convert them in linux
