Hi , I am required to execute a command from my windows machine on to a Linux machine. Currently I am using Net::Telnet package for that. <pr> Now that I want to check the status of that command on my Windows machine. Is there some way where in I can return a magic string to my windows machine on the basis of value of $? variable on Linux machine. I am attaching my code here.
$username="imail1"; $passwd="imail1"; use Net::Telnet (); $t = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 10); $t->open(""); $t->print($username); $t->print($passwd); sleep(5); open(FHH, ">output.txt"); print FHH $t->cmd("cp opwv/config/config.db ./"); $flag=1; close(FHH); open(FH,"<output.txt"); while(<FH>) { if($_ =~ "ERROR"){ $flag = 0; } } if ($flag == 0) { print "Fail"; } else { print "Pass"; } close(FH); unlink("output.txt");
Please let me know whether I can modify the same code or I need to use some totally different module than Net::Telnet..
Prompt reply would be appreciated.. :)
