Is there a way to start snort and just tell it log to a binary file from
the command line without a rules file?  I just want to capture to a
binary file.

I've tried 

snort -b -i eth0  no go with this or even
snort -b -i eth0 -D no go as well.

All I would like is a start snort collecting traffic, put it in the
backgroup, and then once a day restart with a new log.

Tks to Erek's suggestion I'll be using SIGUSR1 to get the statistics
about the capture.
