I've had a quick play with Net::telnet and have got the following program working -

#!/bin/usr/perl -w use strict; use Net::Telnet (); my $mud = new Net::Telnet; $mud->open(Host=>"",Port=>"8888",Timeout=>"10"); $mud->waitfor('/Welcome/'); #wait for a reply $mud->print('connect darrenlupus censoredpassword'); #login $mud->print('morph wolf'); #send a command $mud->print('QUIT'); #let the other side disconnect gracefully
which is about as simple as it can get. It's all working correctly, and even correctly quits at the end, but I get a
Argument "" isn't numeric in numeric gt (>) at D:/Perl/site/lib/Net/ line 2569. error. Am I doing something wrong?
Debugging info: ActiveState Perl (Win32), downloaded Net::Telnet using ppm...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
