Opening a process filehandle
I was thinking about writing a Perl script that would run interactive shells, like windows FTP and Telnet. However, I am having difficulty printing to or from the process with the Perl script, and consequently cannot manage the process. Modules I saw online, like IO::Pty and Expect, don't have functionality in Windows Activestate, but do exactly what I am looking for.
IO::React and Net::Telnet look promising in dealing with interactive processes, but rely on a pre-opened handle to the process to do so (unless I am misunderstanding).
If you know of a way to open a handle to an interactive process in Windows Perl, I would love to know about it!
Thank you very much,
