I have perl script that I execute in the actions. The output of the perl script is a name (Bob, Betty,.) I want to be able to store that result as a variable. Any ideas how I would do this would be appreciated.

Have the perl script write the results to a text file (or use a batch file command to pipe the results) and then use Text File actions to read in the data.

Or, host the script on a web server, and use the "Internet - Submit to Web" action to call the perl script and get the return values that way.
