in thread Net::OpenSSH Problem

what happens when you run the following code?
my $ssh = Net::OpenSSH->new($host, user => $USERNAME, password => $PASSWORD, strict_mode => 0); $ssh->error and die "Couldn't establish SSH connection: " . $ssh->erro +r; $ssh->system('!pwd') or die "remote command failed: " . $ssh->error; print "pwd done\n";

    It runs fine outputting my current home dir. Def a problem of it not giving back control to the script or something ??
    $ssh->error and die "Couldn't establish SSH connection: " . $ssh->erro +r; $ssh->system('!bash') or die "remote command failed: " . $ssh->error; # remote end will look like this after !bash # bp>!bash # [kburns@ssl01-d:Active] ~ # print "will never print this line\n"; $ssh->system('pwd') or die "remote command failed: " . $ssh->error;

      Then, you don't need to execute !bash at all.

      Just run via Net::OpenSSH system (or capture?) the commands you want to run on the remote machine prefixing them by an exclamation mark.

        Arghhhhh. I was about to respond with why this was still a problem and then realized I can execute the vendors shell and it's commands from the legacy BSHELL. These boxes (F5 LBs) have an older CLI Shell and a Newer one. To get into the newer one you would typically just run !bash and then the 'tmsh' command. From there you could run the show commands (show ltm virtual, etc). I never realized I could execute them right from the BSHELL like B>!tmsh sho ltm virtual detail Now I just need to figure out the capture part. Thanks a bunch. Hopefully you will be rid of me for now :)

[GotToBTru]: you probably have the problem firmly fixed in your mind. question is .. when you come back to this in 6 months time, will it still be as clear
[ambrus]: if you have such a deep data structure, and you have trouble dereferencing it, then you should probably think through whether that's really the best data structure you should use
[choroba]: $aohoaoh[0]{foo}[0 ]{bar} was my suggestion
