in reply to Expect Module problem

Well, you aren't doing anything after spawning the process, so the script is ending and killing the process. Try the following:
use Expect; $Expect::Debug = 1; my $string= '/usr/bin/ssh'; my $exp=Expect->spawn($string) || die "error $!\n"; $exp->expect(2, "password: "); $exp->send("XXXXXXXX\n"); $exp->expect(2,'$'); $exp->send("ls\n"); $exp->expect(2,'$');
This works fine on my system.


If your goal is to interact with the ssh session after scripting the login, try adding:

after you have finished logging in.
