in reply to How to log a system call

system returns the exit code of the command executed, which can be seen as "0" in your log file, and not the output. If you want the output of the shell script in the perl script you should use backticks (``) instead.

my @syb1 = `/home/cfso/scripts/EVL_Loggers/check_tlm_MCF_EA_SYB1.csh`;
