You *did* properly escape the command string, right? Otherwise,
my $str = `ssh -n firstname.lastname@example.org ls`;
will try to interpolate the contents of the array @machine into the
command... You need to use
my $str = `ssh -n user\@machine.domain ls`;
BTW, the -n flag is still useful, since some commands don't properly run
yep, everything is escaped as needed. I know that by looking at the
debug1: Sending command: ls <path to file I care about>
I've also printed the command to stdout and pasted it into a windows
cmd shell and cygwin terminal with success.
If I use system("<cmd>"); instead of `<cmd>`;, the command returns 0,
(no hang). Unfortunately system wont work for my needs, as it is
critical I evaluate stdout:stderr.
I do appreciate your help.
