You might want to look at logger(1). It's a shell interface to syslog.

Code:
$ man logger

perl is a programming language and the "logger" statements could be anything, e.g. printfs to document what your script is doing..probably you could tell us the exact problem..

if you want any help in perl atleast, feel free to pm me.

(i have never used logger as my project has a custom logging tool.so dont have much idea using it from perl. though as long as it is a unix command it can be easily done in perl via system function or via backtick operator
