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

dear monks,

use Net::SCP qw(scp); $scp = Net::SCP->new( "155.226.206.195", "metrica"); $scp->get("/apps/inst1/metrica/sample.txt") or die $scp->{errstr};
I have taken the above code from Net::SCP pod. when I executed the above code, I got the following error message
C:\Antony\Perl>perl l.pl Died at l.pl line 5.
help would be appreciated.

    So what's on line 5? (You've only shown us 4 lines.)

    What does this do?

    use Net::SCP qw(iscp); iscp("metrica\@155.226.206.195:/apps/inst1/metrica/sample.txt", ".");
    (update: escaped @)

    I think that you have the procedural interface confused with the OO interface. Your code mixes the two. It seems that your intent was to use the procedural interface:

     use Net::SCP qw(scp); is procedural---not OO.

    $scp = Net::SCP->new( "155.226.205.195", "metrica"); $scp->get("/apps/instl/metrica/sample.txt") or die $scp->{errstr};
    ---is OO.

    I would stick with procedural and take another look at the code that ysth posted.
