in thread telnet question

Since Net::Telnet isa IO::Socket::INET, you can probably also use IO::Select to multiplex many simultaneous connections, without fork() or threads.

I haven't investigated this though.

    So your saying Net::Telnet anf IO::Select would be the the one i use and fork?if i got this right.
      No, you would not normally use IO::Select and fork() together. The three main approaches to parallel communications are:
      • threaded: use threads;
      • forking: fork()
      • multiplexed: use IO::Select;

      As I said above, I don't know for sure that you could get Net::Telnet to work with IO::Select (it has to do with buffering).
