|Subject:||add in a doc ref to Math::BigInt::GMP|
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.
