Hello there. Thanks for Net::Telnet -- it's just been very useful for me. One tiny feature request: the prompt parameter currently accepts a pattern specified in a string (which has the various backslash-quoting problems you mention in the docs). Could precompiled patterns also be accepted here, so the qr// operator can be used instead of quotes? Net::Telnet->new(host => $host, prompt => qr/menu option:/); That would seem more Perl-ish (and allow text editors to syntax-highlight the pattern as a regexp rather than a string). (I'm guessing that your module predates the qr// operator, so this is not a criticism of how it works at the moment, and obviously string support needs to be kept for backwards compatibility.) Cheers. Smylers

Yes, using the qr operator is a much better way to provide the prompt pattern. I'll add this feature to the next release. Thanks for submitting it and sorry it has not already been added. -- Jay Rogers
