Subject: add in a doc ref to Math::BigInt::GMP
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 660b
I'd strongly recommend adding a section in the Net::SSH::Perl pod that talks about speed, and mentions Math::BigInt::GMP. When I found that Net::SSH::Perl takes about 40 seconds to perform a login when running on a 2.3GHz i686, I just about turfed it (use of the module that is). But after a net search I installed Math::BigInt::GMP, added a 'use Math::BigInt::GMP' to the file where I create the ssh object, and login times were reduced to less than a second. (Debugging output shows the obvious; it is spending the time doing various crypto calculations.) Observed in 1.30 although this web form only mentions versions as new as 1.29. Running Fedora 5.

Hi. I just spent a week with my buddy mr GMP. It's challenging to say the least to compile it on Solaris. What I discovered during my trials is that Math::Bigint::GMP will be automatically engaged by Math::Bigint if it's present. make SURE you do a make test when you install this library. It requires the external libraries be installed before it works. On Fri Jun 30 18:54:06 2006, guest wrote: Show quoted text

Thanks; I've been meaning to do this but hadn't gotten around to it. Added to README and Net::SSH::Perl POD for 1.31 with credit in Changes file.
