[Help]Build a tool/application using Perl

tctoa has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I am a newbie in scripting Perl program. Currently, I have a project that build an application using Perl but I don't have much experiences. So, could you all here please help me on this. My tool/application: Can ssh to a server then issuing commands to get log files and verify them. Example: - ssh to a server address: root@ , pass: 123456 - issue "date" - get outputs and push them into a variable @tmp. outputs like "Thu Oct 10 02:16:39 CDT 2019" - then i will have a logic to verify them. For now, I tried to find some guides on the Internet, but still confusing... - Using which function to connect to a server, issuing commands and get output? - How to build an application? Also, please help to show me some links or video related. Thank you very much!

    Net::SSH::Any seems easiest to me.
    #!/usr/bin/env perl use Net::SSH::Any qw(); my $ssh = Net::SSH::Any->new('', user => 'root', password +=> '123456'); my @tmp = $ssh->capture('date');
    How to build an application?
    Perhaps Module::Build::Tiny? You need to explain what you want to achieve because "build" can mean different things.

    Simple Perl programs do not require a building step, they can be run as-is.

      Thank you daxim,

      Look like this does not work.

      use Net::SSH::Any qw(); my $ssh = Net::SSH::Any->new( '', user => 'root', password => 'r3 +v3nue' ); my @tmp = $ssh->capture('ls -lrt'); print " @tmp";


       Use of uninitialized value $tmp[0] in join or string at line 7.

      For the application, please be explained again. I try to give an simple example to easier: - Using Perl to have a script to detect an even number from a number input from keyboar - Create an application base on this script. This can be installed on Windowns. Then, when I wannna find I only need to run the app instead of executing perl "" I am sorry, I cannot use exactly works to describe.

        I only need to run the app instead of executing perl ""
        That's called "compile to a standalone executable". See pp or staticperl or perlcc.

        It's easier to just associate the .pl file extension, so when you attempt to run a .pl file (for example by double-clicking in a file manager), it executes Perl automatically. When you use the Strawberry Perl installer, it does that association for you already.

        Consider adding error handling, as documented in Net::SSH::Any:

        my @tmp = $ssh->capture('ls -lrt'); $ssh->error and die "'ls -lrt' failed: " . $ssh->error;
