I meant layman. This is not documentation meant for the layman:

You can declare source statements using the "source" keyword:

source <sourcename> { sourcedriver params; sourcedriver
params; ... };


destination newsnotice { file("/var/log/news/news.notice"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_newsnotice); destination(newserr); };

My whole point is that it isn't easy even for someone -wanting- to learn

And yes this isn't close to C but then I never mentioned any particular
language. Many conf files are starting to take on the appearance of html
