in reply to Net::SSH2 list files

You have to call Net::SSH2::SFTP::opendir method to get a directory handle object and then read the entries from it.

An easy solution would be to use Net::SFTP::Foreign with the Net::SSH2 backend Net::SFTP::Foreign::Backend::Net_SSH2.

    Thanks for replying salva!

    The problem I have is that I can't figure out a way to read the entries. I can't use Net::SFTP::Foreign at all since I'm on a windows and cygwin is not responding to my pleading :D Is there some other way to get this information from the opendir command?

      # untested! my $sftp = $ssh2->sftp; my $dh = $sftp->opendir($dir); while (my %entries = $dh->read) { print "$_\n" for keys %entries; }

      BTW, Net::SFTP::Foreign works with ActiveState and Strawberry versions of perl.

        When I run it I just get:

        uid, mode, mtime, name, atime, size, gid, uid

        Over and over again instead of getting the 3 files in the folder I defined :(

        Still thank you for trying!

        Net::SFTP::Foreign needs IO/ which is only supported on windows if you run it with cygwin which for me still creates a bunch of problems :(
