    I dunno, the whole idea of an open source OS is that you should be able to get the source code.

    Maybe even
    syslogd source code - Google Search
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    "Syslog" is just a unix or BSD derived concept/protocol. So there are various historical implimentations of syslogd around. Most current linux distros do not use or offer it as a binary. After tiring of some problems with rsyslog (the newer system logger now used most places, I think), I recently starting using this one:

    Infodrom Projects -- sysklogd

    via. gentoo. It seems to work fine. The package is actually two daemons, syslogd and klogd (hence "sysklogd" I guess). If you look in the source tarball, you will find a syslog.c and syslogd.c. I'd also guess this is the implimentation used generally on linux before it was (perhaps prematurely) "depreciated". Have fun.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
