NateTut has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
All I want to do is read the contents of a file using sftp into a scalar. I've spent all afternoon going down dead end after dead end. Help!
First I was using the wrong repository. Once I got a 5.10 repository the install of Net::SSH2 went much better. Next I had to install Net::SFTP::Foreign::Backend::Net_SSH2 no ppd I could find, but it had no xs to compile, so the manual install method did the trick.
Thanks to all the monks for their help!
