Re^3: using SSH2 backendby Aldebaran (Chaplain)

Thanks, salva, your explanation seemed to play out on my command line:
The way forward in mind was to make lexical variables of the blocking, so that the entire perl syntax could be brought to bear:
It seems to be the next blocking call in analogous fashion that draws an error. As this is described by a flag, ergo one or zero as the logical values we all know, it shouldn't take a whole lot of effort to enumerate the possibilities.
It helps me to get a feel for the software to run it with different values. There's a little something learned with each failure:
But after a while you realize, gosh, I'm getting blocked no matter what I do with calls to 3 different channels. Some things happen; some don't:
With debug set to one, I'm reading something here, but
What I find revealing here is that all the channels are destroyed at the very end. Those close calls aren't doing a thing. I tried changing up the blocking scheme:
This draws an error:Can't call method "blocking" on an undefined value at ./6.ssh2_1.pl line 23.
It seems there are several threads that go like mine here, where there is little resolution for the difficulties attending to using this particular SSH2 implementation as of this writing. I am well aware that many of the peripheral software changes in perl happen at the hands of people who are much better at it than me, and like me, volunteer their time to promote open source solutions. It's one thing I like about perl so much. (I'm so glad that I left FORTRAN for C, and c for perl.) There's nothing stopping anyone from calling all those libraries we knew. P.J. Plauger was kind enough to share his source with me for _The Standard C Library_, where the math library was good enough for the time. But what with the newer ones just off the griddle? The math gets a lot harder in contemporary encryption scenarios.
I have more imaginative failures to post and found errors in my script, but I just felt successfully blocked, even when I tried to lower the number of channels to one. Either there is some hobgoblin sitting on my router that prevents ssh2 whilst allowing facebook, or I think I can say that I was unable to use this library.
I see downthread that you suggested an alternative, which I will try. Thx for the informative write-up.
