I cite from my README:

"This server provides simply output channels in l4vfs manner, which are
forwarded to log.  As such it wraps log's output features, but
provides its functionality trough a simple open()/write()/close()

What exactly is it that you don't understand about the example?

Again from the README:

  ./fiasco -lname_server -l"fstab -c /server -c /server/log -v10 -b/   \
      -m/server/log" -ll4vfs_log -l"my_prog1 --stdout                  \

l4vfs_log simply provides an l4vfs program with a way to have its stdout
/ stderr redirected to log.  You can simply transfer logs output via a
nullmodem cable and save the data on another computer.
