Net::SSH::Perl doesn't like long commands

Net::SSH::Perl has a history of not being user-friendly.
Fer chrissake just use one of salva's SSH modules - whichever one is right for your OS , and ask if you don't know which one that is.
(salva is far too modest to state that explicitly, but I'm not bound by any such constraints.)

I mean no offence to the current maintainer (yes, it apparently now has one) of Net::SSH::Perl, but a module that contains the word "Perl" in its name yet has so many C-extensions as pre-requisites, is surely trying to sell itself on false pretences.

Cheers,
Rob

    I am not so modest. The thing is more on the I-am-tired-of-recommending-my-modules side :-)

    My usual recommendation is to go for Net::OpenSSH if you are on a Linux/Unix box and Net::SSH2 (currently being maintained by Rafael Kitover) if you are on Windows.

    Net::SSH::Any is supposed to provide an unified interface to both modules but it is still a work in progress. Though, it is already been used, and what it does, it does it right, mostly!

      and Net::SSH2 (currently being maintained by Rafael Kitover) if you are on Windows

      And many thanks to Rafael for that module - I'm on MS Windows, and that's the precise module I use. (Of course, I use it via Net::SSH2::Foreign::Backend::Net_SSH2 ... not sure where *that* module comes from ;-)

      UPDATE: Ooops ... I'm confusing SFTP and SSH2, now. Probably time for a nap;-)
