This will read the list of files into an array:

@listing = $sftp=>ls('/tmp');

You can output that with normal print statements.

16  @listing=$sftp=>ls('/tmp');

Undefined subroutine &main::ls called at ./sftp.pl line 16.

Oh, sorry, that was a typo...

@listing = $sftp->ls('/tmp');

Then it has changed... try %listing instead of @listing

@listing = $sftp->ls('/tmp');
while ( my ($key, $value) = each(%listing) ) {
        print "$key => $value\n";
}
