I don't believe Net::Telnet does terminal type option negotiation. As a result, setting this environment variable probably isn't having any effect.

To see the types of option negotiation performed with your stock 'telnet' application, use the "toggle options" command:

$ telnet telnet> toggle options Will show option processing. telnet> open ...
You should then get a bunch of diagnostic output showing the telnet options being passed back and forth, and among those should be options specifying a willingness to negotiate terminal type and the request and reply with the actual information.

Your job, should you choose to really need it, would be to get your Net::Telnet object to send these options when you make your connection, probably through callbacks and the like. Looking at documentation for the module, the 'option_send' function should start you on the track, but it doesn't look like it's implemented. You've gotta let the other end know you're willing to do terminal type negotiation, and presumably then you could use the option_callback function to respond to a request for the terminal type. :/

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
