String found where operator expected at /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/s +ervices/my-report line 1, at end of line (Do you need to predeclare perl?) Warning: Use of "log" without parentheses is ambiguous at /usr/share/ +logwatch/scripts/services/my-report line 1. syntax error at /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/my-report line 1 +, next token ??? Search pattern not terminated at /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services +/my-report line 1.

    What I meant was : Get rid of the "perl -we" entirely.

    This includes the single quotes after "perl -we", and the matching one at the end of the program.

    The reason for this is that , for some reason, for this script, your system is invoking the perl interpreter automatically, instead of the expected bash (or other) shell. And 'perl' does not like a program content to start with 'perl -we'.
