Perlnet Telnet issue with ->by Flynt (Initiate)
|on Jan 15, 2010 at 20:10 UTC||Need Help??|
Flynt has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'll try to ask this as clearly as I can. Can't seem to find an answer to how to fix this. Currently I am using the telnet module to login to a machine and retrieve information using a simple info command(it retrieves machine type, serial number, MAC addresses, etc.) The problem I am having is the output contains -> as one of the MAC address entries.
When I get to that entry, perl stops trying to gather more data and my script stops. Here's the snippet of code. As you can see, it's very simple.
Now I can also just print the result with print $telnet->waitfor('/>/i'); Either way, the output is the sameWhere I should receive this as the output
MAC Address 1: 00:1A:64:85:B2:C0 -> 00:1A:64:85:B2:CF
MAC Address 1: 00:1A:64:85:B2:C0 ->
How do I tell it to ignore that as a command? telnetmode does not work for this case.All help appreciated,
