This is a really nice, clean version of the script. Excellent work!

Well I have to admit that I'm really puzzled at this point! Because I cannot find "show" nowhere on this system. It only works if you 1) ssh into the box and operate within the proprietary netscaler environment or 2) if you issue the commands remotely via ssh.

If I execute a "shell" command within the netscaler software to get to a unix shell, this is the result of my best efforts to find the command called "show".

root@ns# find / -name "show" -print root@ns# show -bash: show: command not found root@ns# echo $PATH /netscaler:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/libexec:/usr/local/bin:/ +usr/local/sbin:. root@ns# grep -ri show $PATH grep: /netscaler:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/libexec:/usr/local +/bin:/usr/local/sbin:.: No such file or directory root@ns#

What gives? I'm starting to feel like there is some voodoo going on with this box that I don't completely grok! Do I have to somehow invoke the netscaler shell first,before I do anything else?

This is the contents of a directory called "/netscaler" that has a bunch of commands and scripts in it, that I can't seem to make heads or tails of. Most of them are binaries (not scripts) so I can't even "less" them to see what they contain. weird!

[moritz]: but even if I had all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend much on perlmonks
[LanX]: holli: LOL
[LanX]: moritz: why ? family?
[LanX]: or other language?
[moritz]: LanX because of usability issues, and the lack of evolvement
[holli]: lol to the robust charme or to the data transfer?
[holli]: it works fine with Lynx though :)
