Hello,

Can anyone please help explain how to use sftp in perl without using NET::SFTP. I think it will be possible just by using binary commands in program. For eg. using
sft username\@hostname.
If I want to use this from program where should I put password? If anyone put some sample lines that would be a great help. Urgent replies would be highly appreciated.

Thank you as always!

That link doesn't really contain the information you are after.

Firstly, why don't you want to use Net::SFTP?

Here's an example of feeding responses to sftp
open SFTP, "/usr/bin/sftp user@host|" or die "Can not run sftp $!\n";
print SFTP "some command\n";
print SFTP "some other command\n";
print SFTP "exit\n";
close SFTP;

Thanks Tintin, Acutally I am using perl5.0024 and I copied NET::SFTP and refered the directory using use lib (path) but it threw some exceptions. In my company if I want to install any package then I have to go through various steps and very time consuming so I decided to use SFTP.

Just wondering where to specify the password in above code? I want to schedule this program from cron jobs.

Hello,

I would recommend you use public key authentication with SFTP this will make your program
much simpler to write.
