neither can i get information before the buffer runs over.

Is there any way in perl I can get input by the character rather than by the buffer?

I'm actually trying to connect to several servers on the telnet port, basically read in anything until the login: and then disconnect.

This way I can check the virtual server's handshakes.

you can use and expect script:


#!/usr/bin/expect

set timeout 1200

spawn telnet hostname.domain

expect {
  "login:" { exit; }
}


then run it like this:

% myexpect.ex > logfile

That's excellent, but as in my question I really need to do this in perl, not shell.

I've got Net::Telnet, that'll time me out and send/recieve data, but it won't actually send me what I need.

I'm currently modifying the Telnet.pm module so it will do what I want it to do. :/

Thanks flivaudaa for your efforts, here's a well deserved 100 points.

I'm trying to check different server's handshakes, and have the script do different things, dependant on the results.
