Subject: Ability to read extended stream
I wanted to use READLINE function to read the output from stdout and then from stderr. Currently the provided READLINE functionality only for stdout. I have attached the containing changes to READLINE and GETC function. I am new atcontributing to the open sourcve world. So please let me know if I need to provide the patch in any other way. Kind Regards Vandana

As well as being an object, it is also a tied filehandle. The L<Net::SSH2> C<poll> method can be used to check for read/write availability and other conditions. =head2 setenv ( key, value ... ) Sets remote environment variables. Note that most implementations do not allow environment variables to be freely set. Pass in a list of keys and values with the values to set. Returns the number of successful sets. =head2 blocking ( flag ) Enable or disable blocking. =head2 eof Returns true if the remote server sent an EOF. =head2 send_eof Send an EOF to the remote. After an EOF has been sent, no more data may be sent; the connection should be closed. =head2 close Close the channel (happens automatically on object destruction). =head2 wait_close Wait for a remote close event. Must have already seen remote EOF. =head2 exit_status Returns the channel's program exit status. =head2 pty ( terminal [, modes [, width [, height ]]] ) Request a terminal on a channel. If provided, C<width> and C<height> are the width and height in characters (defaults to 80x24); if negative their absolute values specify width and height in pixels. =head2 process ( request, message ) Start a process on the channel. See also L<shell>, L<exec>, L<subsystem>. =head2 shell Start a shell on the remote host; calls L<process>("shell"). =head2 exec ( command ) Execute the command on the remote host; calls L<process>("exec", command). Note that only one of these requests can succeed per channel (cp. L<perlfunc/exec>); if you want to run a series of commands, consider using L<shell> instead. =head2 subsystem ( name ) Run subsystem on the remote host; calls L<process>("subsystem", command). =head2 ext_data ( mode ) Set extended data handling mode: =over 4 =item normal (default) Keep data in separate channels; stderr is read separately. =item ignore Ignore all extended data. =item merge Merge into the regular channel. =back =head2 read ( buffer, size [, ext ] ) Attempts to read size bytes into the buffer. Returns number of bytes read, undef on failure. If ext is present and set, reads from the extended data channel (stderr). =head2 write ( buffer [, ext ] ) Attempts to write the buffer to the channel. Returns number of bytes written, undef on failure. If ext is present and set, writes to the extended data channel (stderr). =head2 flush ( [ ext ] ) Flushes the channel; if ext is present and set, flushes extended data channel. Returns number of bytes flushed, undef on error. =head1 SEE ALSO L<Net::SSH2>. =head1 AUTHOR David B. Robins, E<lt>dbrobins@cpan.orgE<gt> =head1 COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE Copyright (C) 2005 by David B.
