in reply to ciscodump - dump config info from routers into files

I had the same issues looking for a Net::Telnet::Cisco equivalent in SSH and found nothing that worked so rolled "my own" by liberally copying from both Net::Telnet and Net::Telnet::Cisco and also using Net::SSH2 for the SSH part - because it was the only one I could find that worked well on Windows.

This created Net::SSH2::Cisco.

Since this work is really not mine, but just combining the great works of those module authors, I didn't put on CPAN. You can find it on GitHub though here:

UPDATE 2015-11-07: Now on CPAN: Net::SSH2::Cisco

    Even if you don't consider it "your work", please do consider uploading it onto CPAN so that other people can easily install it! It might help somebody who looks for something like it and save them some work :-)

      I wasn't sure what the etiquette would be on issue like this. I sent emails to the module authors, but got no response.

      I'll clean it up and get it on CPAN with the appropriate credit, references, etc...

        It's rather nice that you're attempting to contact the authors to inform them, but this kind of 'borrowing' from other modules is very common. Just make sure that you review the license of each module you bit code from to ensure they are permissive (I've never seen a module on CPAN that wasn't).
