The line @logarray=<LOG>;   # dumps all of $logfile into @logarray is reading all of the lines into an array. The test @logarray eq $error is in scalar context. It is comparing the number of lines in the file to the text. This will bever succeed.

Ignore the list building and just work through the file line by line and use a regular expression to test.

Take a look at the following as an example.

use strict; # Set the button to green initially my $button = "perlgreenblink"; # test the file line by line. # The line gets read into $_ # I am testing on the DATA segment to illustrate the point while (<DATA>){ # test with a regex and end the # while loop if there is a problem if (/DOWN/){ $button = "perlredblink2"; last; } if (/PROBLEM/){ $button = "perlyellowblink"; last; } } print "HTML for <img src=\"$button.gif\" />\n"; __DATA__ nothing here going smoothly Its all going DOWN no PROBLEM at all
