( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I use Net::Telnet my command works but it also echoes the command and I want just the results. The docs for Net::Telnet talk about this and suggest using cmd_remove_mode, yet I still get the same result in my output. I've been working on this silly problem for hours. It seems so simple but I cannot figure out what I'm missing here?

Here's my code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Net::Telnet (); my $t = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 10, Prompt => '/host\@user ~\/'); my ($username, $passwd) = qw(user password); $t->open("host"); $t->login($username, $passwd); my @distro = $t->cmd(String => "cat /etc/redhat-release", cmd_remove_mode => '1'); print "@distro";
Which produces this output:
$ ./connect.pl $ cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5 (Final)

and I don't want the cat command. Can anyone shed some light?

UPDATE:
Set cmd_remove_mode to the number of lines to remove such as

my @distro = $t->cmd(String => "cat /etc/redhat-release", cmd_remove_mode => '2');

to remove two lines.
