I use the clogin (jlogin for $J devices) program from RANCID in a lot of
quick little perl scripts. I find it a better solution than using
Net::Telnet::Cisco, as that library doesn't support ssh while clogin

Something like so:

foreach my $router (@bgp_speakers) {
        open CLOGIN,
                "/usr/local/rancid2/bin/clogin -c \"show ip bgp sum\" $router|"
                        or die "Can't open CLOGIN: $!";

        while (<CLOGIN>) {
