in reply to Disconnect from Remote Server

For your particular example, you can use SFTP instead of running remote commands and capturing their output.

This script from the Net::SFTP::Foreign distribution shows how to emulate a tail -f over SFTP.

    I get the following error message, when I execute the perl script:

    Undefined subroutine &Net::SFTP::Foreign::_catch_tainted_args called at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10/Net/SFTP/ line 156.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Net::SFTP::Foreign; use Fcntl qw(SEEK_END); my ($host, $file, $user, $pwd, $port) = undef; my $sftp = Net::SFTP::Foreign->new($host, $user, $pwd, $port); $sftp->error and die "Unable to connect to remote host: ".$sftp->error +."\n";


      I have just uploaded to CPAN version 1.62 solving that problem.

        Thank you
