To whom it may concern, Using the Net::Telnet package, I have had great results. Recently though I had made changes to my code so that I am retrieving and processing a large amount of data from a telnet connection. I soon found a major slow down. After a bit of troubleshooting I found the culprit was the matching variables in the file. Line: 2323 @match_cond = ('if ($s->{buf} =~ ', ') { $prematch = $`; $match = $&; substr($s->{buf}, 0, length($`) + length($&)) = ""; last; }'); It seems that the excessive slowdown deals with the regex matching I am using and the matching variables. To resolve the issue I changed the code to read this: @match_cond = ('if ($s->{buf} =~ ', ') { $prematch = substr($s->{buf},0, $-[0]); $match = substr($s->{buf},$-[0], $+[0]-$-[0]); substr($s->{buf}, 0, length($prematch) + length($match)) = ""; last; }'); I am using an AIX 6.1 and a Red Hat Linux 7.1 server. I have tested this with both perl v5.6.1 and v5.8.8.
