I'm using cronolog to dump my output into datetime stamped files (after asking here on SF). However cronolog will split a line in the middle and spread one line across multiple files if the input comes across the boundary. Is there anyway to make cronolog only split based on (say) \n? I don't want lines to be cut.

As I said in the referenced question: Use logger which doesn't split. –  mailq Nov 3 '11 at 12:25
@mailq logger will only log to syslog, I don't want this content in syslog, but my own files. –  Rory Nov 3 '11 at 14:48
