in reply to Perl won't run command with "|&"

You may be running csh as your shell, but perl appears to be using sh to run the command in backticks, according to the errors you're getting. I don't think sh has the |& syntax. This should combine STDOUT and STDERR and send the result to a file and to your backticks output:

`wget "http://whatever" 2>&1 | tee /path/to/tee.log`
