Description : Perl client Interface to SSH
Net::SSH::Perl is an all-Perl module implementing an SSH client.
It is compatible with both the SSH-1 and SSH-2 protocols.
Net::SSH::Perl enables you to simply and securely execute commands on remote
machines, and receive the STDOUT, STDERR, and exit status of a remote command.
It contains built-in support for various methods of authenticating and
completely implements the I/O buffering, packet transport, and authentication
layers in pure Perl.
One advantage to using Net::SSH::Perl over wrapper-style implementations of
ssh clients is that it saves on process overhead. Depending on the amount of
time and memory needed to fork a process, this win can be quite substantial;
particularly if you're running in a persistent Perl environment (mod_perl,
for example), where forking a new process is a drain on process and memory
