WhiskeyJack has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Monks,

Is there some way for me to list all the files in a folder on my SFTP server using Net::SSH2. Right now I'm using a shell script but that won't work because the program will be run on several different operating systems.

Thanks in Advance

      Thanks for replying salva!

      The problem I have is that I can't figure out a way to read the entries. I can't use Net::SFTP::Foreign at all since I'm on a windows and cygwin is not responding to my pleading :D Is there some other way to get this information from the opendir command?

        # untested! my $sftp = $ssh2->sftp; my $dh = $sftp->opendir($dir); while (my %entries = $dh->read) { print "$_\n" for keys %entries; }

        BTW, Net::SFTP::Foreign works with ActiveState and Strawberry versions of perl.
