Hi All,

I have problems in assigning a string to a variable in the bro file

local act: string;
if (value == 1) {
	act = "SAFE";
} else {
	act = "CHECK";

The bro stopped when traffic was seen.

I also tried using  sub_bytes. I got the following error.
1170987410.223443 /root/bro-devel/dhanesh/site/dhanbro.bro, line 293 (act =
sub_bytes(SAFE, 0, len)): error, illegal assignment in initialization.

Can anyone suggest a method for assigning strings to a variable.
