in reply to Setting $telnet->prompt()

In general there is no way to do that, since the user's prompt could be null, or identical to some of the output from the commands you want to run, or... anything. On the other hand, if the shell is sh or bash-like, you can set PS1 to any string you like to change the prompt:
weirduser@localhost's password: weirdprompt;-} PS1="my_prompt> " my_prompt>

[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
