Re: Catching die in Net::SFTP / Net::SSH::Perl:

in reply to Catching die in Net::SFTP / Net::SSH::Perl:

Hmm, I don't know if I was a character off on my syntax somewhere, but eval seems to work now without errors.

On the other hand... I just broke Net::SFTP by trying to update some modules. So now I'm going to have to restore Perl from backup before I can test if this actually works or not. I was even using cpan to update, sometimes I really really hate Perl.

------------------

EDIT: Let's say I'm on a cloud server (Unix variant, Apache, etc.) and connecting to it via SFTP and SSH to update and run my code. If I'm understanding correctly, Net::SFTP::Foreign doesn't require all those millions of broken dependencies like Net::SFTP does, but it does require an SSH client of some sort. What client would that probably be and how would I interface with it? Can you give me a simple connection example? If I don't explictly specify something, will it use the standard ssh and/or sftp utilities?

    Net::SFTP::Foreign (...) does require an SSH client of some sort. What client would that probably be and how would I interface with it?

    If the box running your script has Linux or some other Unix installed, Net::SFTP::Foreign will just use the SSH client in your system (as long as it is named ssh and is in the PATH). You can also install OpenSSH in a custom location and tell the module to use it with the ssh_cmd option. As it seems that you are using password authentication you will also have to install Expect.

    If you want to run the script under Windows, your best option may probably be to use the Net::SSH2 backend Net::SFTP::Foreign::Backend::Net_SSH2. The default backend does not support password authentication under Windows because of Expect not working there. Alternatively, you could use plink (read the FAQ section from the module documentation for the details).

    Examples of how to connect to a remote server are included in the docs. Usually, this will do:

    my $sftp = Net::SFTP::Foreign->new($host, user => $user, passwd => $pa +sswd); $sftp->error and die "SFTP connection failed: " . $sftp->error;
