Hi Salva,


Thank you for pointing that out. I have been using the module as shown in a tutorial posted here, but not sure where I am going wrong. I will be thankful if you could provide any pointers on how to use it correctly.

use Learning::Perl; use Beginning::Perl::Ovid; print "Awesome Books"; is a boon for Windows.

    Well, the truth it is a little tricky:

    First, you should loop until the eof method from Net::SSH2::Channel returns true.

    In order to not have a busy loop, you can use sock (that returns the socket used for the SSH connection) and block_directions (which tells one if Net::SSH2 needs to write or read from that socket) combined with select to wait for some activity on the SSH socket.

    Or you can just use Net::SSH::Any that will do all of that for you (or you can also look at its source code for inspiration).
