A few thoughts, dmckee, worth exactly what you paid for them:   {grin}
  • Google search on the error message turns up nothing.   Darn.
  • I try to use cmd(); instead of print().   You've probably already perused it, but this is from Net::Telnet pod's examples:
    use Net::Telnet (); $host = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 30, Prompt => '/[%#>] $/'); $prompt = '_funkyPrompt_'; $host -> open($hostname); $host -> login($username, $passwd); $host -> prompt("/$prompt\$/"); $host -> cmd("set prompt = '$prompt'"); $host -> cmd("..."); $host -> close;
  • It doesn't appear very relevant, but here's what I could find in the pod about block size.
    max_buffer_length - maximum size of input buffer $len = $obj->max_buffer_length; $prev = $obj->max_buffer_length($len); This method designates the maximum size of the input buffer. An error is generated when a read causes the buffer to exceed this limit. The default value is 1,048,576 bytes (1MB). The input buffer can grow much larger than the block size when you continuously read using getline() or waitfor() and the data stream contains no newlines or matching waitfor patterns. With no argument this method returns the current maximum buffer length set in the object. With an argument it sets the maximum buffer length to $len and returns the previous value.
  • Maybe you've uncovered a glitch with that server, or a bug in Net::Telnet.   If nothing else, the module author, Jay Rogers, invites comments or suggestions.

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.
