in reply to Net:::OpenSSH Prompt Access

There is no such thing as the current prompt.

You get a prompt when you run an interactive shell but Net::OpenSSH doesn't talk to a remote shell. It directly executes the commands given. The SSH protocol allows to do that.

    I had a feeling it operated a bit differently. And about 1000x faster than other Perl SSH mods. Thanks !!
      Net::OpenSSH is as fast as a SSH client can be and the same can be said for most other SSH modules, i.e. Net::SSH::Perl (as far as Math::Pari installed), Net::SSH2, etc. The only one that's quite slower is Net::SSH because it establishes a new SSH connection every time it executes a remote command.

[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
