As a happy user of Net::SSH::Perl and Net::SFTP, which I have often mentioned in answers to SoPW questions, I think that many people may be glad to know that Net::SSH2 has just been released, which has "several advantages" (in the author's words) over the former modules.

An archived copy of the announcement on the ssh-sftp-perl-users ml is available here.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Nice. I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'm currently using Net::SFTP in production and while it works rather well, it's a pain to install because of all the dependencies Net::SSH::Perl has. Only requiring libSSH2 and thus OpenSSL would make it significantly easier to get up and running.

    This is great news, particularly the scp support. Some of the stuff I did with the Krang build farm would have been much cleaner with this module.


      Also, while for me the installation of Net::SFTP took long but went fundamentally painlessly, I've heard of complaints from other people having serious difficulties while trying to get it up and running due to the huge list of dependencies.

    Please check the node - A little demo for Net::SSH2 by Zentara. Its really very informative. I recently created a script, the basis of which was Zentara's excellent writeup.

    Please note, if you are an absolute beginner to Perl, I would kindly request you to please first go through some Basic Perl stuff, also pick up some good books like "Learning Perl 6th Edition" and "Beginning Perl" by Curtis Poe. Not saying that there aren't any other good books, but I found these two books to be really awsome. These will really get you going and keep things pretty interesting.

    If you have picked up the above example because you want to start learning Perl, then may I humbly suggest that you pick something a little easier and gradually move on to stuff like this.

    I erronously posted a reply here. And could find a way to delete the node. Hence the (earlier) empty reply. Sincere apologies
