Hello, I use => Perl v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi => Net::SSH::Perl Version 1.30 to control a remote computer which works pretty good. But there is one scenario the module is not able to deal with: the program started with $ssh->cmd('program'); generates a child process and terminates. The child repeats a specific task in an endless loop until it is terminated using kill. pid = fork(); if(pid>0) { while(1) { ... } } else if(pid==0) { exit(0); } else { ... } My problem is, that the call to $ssh->cmd('program') does not return until the child is terminated and not as I would expect when the father process exits. Your help would be appreciated dr -- GMX FreeDSL Komplettanschluss mit DSL 6.000 Flatrate und Telefonanschluss für nur 17,95 Euro/mtl.!*
