SyslogScan::WhereIs::guess -- return full path of syslog file where mail messages are logged
my $syslogPath = new SyslogScan::Whereis::guess("/etc/syslog.conf");
Scans a syslog configuration file to try to figure out where "mail.info" messages are sent. Default configuration file is "/etc/syslog.conf".
Returns undef if the syslog file cannot be determined.
It might have been more elegant to return an array of syslog files; this would, as a bonus, permit multiple syslogs to be returned if mail messages go to more than one place.
