Hi All,
I have been looking for expect like interface for Net::SSH lib,
but apparently there is none.

Net::SSH is working fine for me except one place I need to check
the scp command prompt and send the password. (Invoking scp on
the machine to which I have ssh'ed).

Can somebody on list, provide some guidelines as to how can this
be achieved.

- I tried sending the password blindly to the popen session once
i get on_success or on_stderr callback. However this seems to be
not working. The log says..

--------

What I think is that there are these extra keysequence that are being 
passed to the sever.
Do I need to emulate any kind of terminal for this to work.

What will be the best approach to implement expect like interface to 
Net::SSH if at all
I can't get this working with existing functinoality.

Any pointer will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and Regards,
Manish
