EEK! that's a big security hole you are digging. But i won't bog you down with why i think this is a bad idea.

Instead I will point you to SOAP::Lite. You could write a server that keeps a persistant connection (via SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Daemon) to a Net::Telnet session. The client would then call the server with a command and print the results back to the browser:

This is just a suggestion - i have not actually written anything like this myself . . . but i think this is definately do-able. The big question is - WHY!?! It's horribly unsafe!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
