in reply to How to execute Net::OpenSSH remote command requiring input

You can feed data to the remote process using the stdin_data option as follows:

$ssh = Net::OpenSSH->new($hostname, user => $username, master_stderr_d +iscard => 1} $command = "cd /usr/local/bin; interactive_program.pl"; @out = $ssh->capture({stdin_data => "input1\ninput2\ninput3\n"}, $comm +and);
Though, I don't think that will solve your problem... the Expect approach seems more promising!

    Ahh, I see, didn't know about that option either. Thanks very much for the reply salva! The expect method is working great, the sample was very helpful.
