Build a Log Parser with Bash

[ Thanks to Andrew
Weber
for this link. ]

“The idea behind a log parser is to create a loop that
will check all of your required logs to return information about
specific needs that you may have as an administrator. For example,
with this script you may want to search a specific log for one or
two text strings that are very important to the function of your
system.

#!/bin/bash

script=$(basename $0)_errors
log1=/var/log/messages
log2=/var/log/secure
log3=/var/log/dmesg
