I think you want:

[ qr'ssword: ', sub { $spawn_ok=1; $scp->stty('-echo'); # echo off print $scp ("password\n"); $scp->stty('echo'); # echo on exp_continue; } ],

(untested, don't have Expect installed)

[usemodperl]: sorry veltro, venting...
[usemodperl]: (is that wrong marto?)
[aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
[marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
[usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
[choroba]: I'm definitely not obsessed with whitespace, I rate myself among Perl people, and I haven't noticed any hounding
[marto]: "no it's not that"...."weirdos "...
