This optional field specifies the file name containing a daemon's
process ID or to find a group process ID if the U flag was speci-
fied. If this field is present, a signal_number is sent the
process ID contained in this file. If this field is not present,
then a SIGHUP signal will be sent to syslogd(8), unless the N
flag has been specified. This field must start with `/' in order
to be recognized properly.
This optional field specifies the signal number that will be sent
to the daemon process (or to all processes in a process group, if
the U flag was specified). If this field is not present, then a
SIGHUP signal will be sent.
