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');

HASH(0xfa4cbc) HASH(0xfa4d58) HASH(0xfa4da0) HASH(0xfa4e48) HASH(0xfa4ef0) HASH(0xfa4f98) HASH(0xfa5040) HASH(0xfa50e8) HASH(0xfa5190) HASH(0xfa5238) HASH(0xfa52e0) HASH(0xfa5388) HASH(0xfa5430) HASH(0xfa54d8) HASH(0xfa5580) HASH(0xfd4f6c) HASH(0xfd5014) HASH(0xfd50bc) HASH(0xfd5164) HASH(0xfd520c) HASH(0xfd52b4) HASH(0xfd535c) HASH(0xfd5404) HASH(0xfd54ac) HASH(0xfd5554) HASH(0xfd55fc) HASH(0xfd56a4) HASH(0xfd574c) HASH(0xfd57f4) HASH(0xfd589c) HASH(0xfd5944) HASH(0xfd59ec) HASH(0xfd5a94) HASH(0xfd5b3c) HASH(0xfd5be4) HASH(0xfd5c8c) HASH(0xfd5d34) HASH(0xfd5ddc) HASH(0xfd5e84) HASH(0xfd9930) HASH(0xfd99d8) HASH(0xfd9a80) HASH(0xfd9b28) HASH(0xfd9bd0) HASH(0xfd9c78) HASH(0xfd9d20) HASH(0xfd9dc8) HASH(0xfd9e70) HASH(0xfd9f18)

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

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