wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi, using perl 5.8.8 on ubuntu.
I have a script that uses expect.pm to ssh to a device, pull some configs, parse the configs and tell the user if certain things are configured correctly or not.
Everything is working great except for one device type that is a cisco content engine.
The problem is, I suppose that this device sets the column width to a pretty small number when connected via script so all the output wraps which makes it near about impossible to pull what I need from it in an orderly fashion.
Can someone tell me how to manually tell the device what my column width is. It seems to work fine in my ssh client, but when accessing it through the script is all wrapped. So again, I'd assume it is a setting that the client is sending to the device. Within the IOS of the device there is no way to manually set the width such as on catos' "set width XXX"
