i'm not that known with perl so i hope someone can help me with this little off topic question.

How can i export the message, that is added via syslog in the message file, from the perl script that updates the Virusdefinition files?

So it has to be somthing like:

error_msg=Lynx failed with error......

export error_msg

In the shel script i now use the error_msg for the result of the update.
