I am not a programmer by any stretch of the imagination, but if you
cannot escape the comma the usual way (with a '\'), I wonder if there is
a way to embed an ascii or escape code or some such for the
comma...something like \0x2c just a thought...  Another consideration
would be to modify getlog.pl to use a different separator, such as
semicolon or colon, etc....

Good Luck!!
