18.3.2. Compatibility with syslogd

From rsyslog version 6, compatibility mode specified via the -c option has been removed. Also, the syslogd-style command-line options are deprecated and configuring rsyslog through these command-line options should be avoided. However, you can use several templates and directives to configure rsyslogd to emulate syslogd-like behavior.
For more information on various rsyslogd options, see the rsyslogd(8)manual page.
