in thread Cisco SNMP CDP Poll

Easiest way(I think) would be to change the bit of code that reads:

#Prompt for SNMP community string print "community: "; chomp($community = <STDIN>); to $community=WHATEVERYOURCOMMUNITYSTRINGIS;
Then launch the script with cdppoll.pl ip > nameoftextfile
I am sure that there is a better way to do this(and one day I'll get off my but and add some text output as an option)
Or if you open a filehandle to write to inside the code change the format STDOUT to format FILEHANDLE and the write to write FILEHANDLE. That should work as well.

    Put stuff like the community string into a config file and load it as needed. I use Config::Tiny but there are a host of alternatives.

    I put any variable that I may need in more than one program into a central system config file. That way, when community strings, passwords, file paths, etc. change, I only have to modify one file instead of twenty.

    Hope this helps,
