Name        : perl-Net-SSH-Expect
Product     : Fedora 17

Summary     : Net-SSH-Expect - SSH wrapper to execute remote commands
Description :
This module is a wrapper to the *ssh* executable that is available in
your system's *$PATH*. Use this module to execute commands on the
remote SSH server. It authenticates with the user and password you
passed in the constructor's attributes "user" and "password".

Once an ssh connection was started using the "connect()" method it will
remain open until you call the "close()" method. This allows you execute
as many commands as you want with the "exec()" method using only one
connection. This is a better approach over other ssh wrapper
implementations, i.e: Net::SCP, Net::SSH and Net::SCP::Expect, that
start a new ssh connection each time a remote command is issued or a
file is transfered.

It uses *Expect.pm* module to interact with the SSH server. A
"get_expect()" method is provided so you can obtain the internal
"Expect" object connected to the SSH server. Use this only if you have
some special need that you can't do with the "exec()" method.

This module was inspired by Net::SCP::Expect
and by Net::Telnet and some of its methods work the same as these two
