--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Device Interaction Suite is a set of Perl modules that implements
Transport, Authentication, and device Connection Classes.  

These classes create an object oriented API for dealings with devices
such as routers and switches.  Additionally, these classes extend and
abstract the perl Expect module, and many of Expect's functions are 
wrapped, or made otherwise available.

A design goal of DIS was to implement the ability for a user to
interactively login to a router with or without knowledge of the
Transport or Authentication mechanisms, or execute specific or script
actions, with our without logic both serially and parallel.

In support of this design goal, Dis.pm wraps around the Transport,
Authentication, and Connection classes to provide a simplified API to
the end-user.  This API is intended to be utilized by the 'dis' script,
and other scripts which have a common need for similar command-line
argument processing and options.

Prerequisites

  Prior to attempting installation, ensure Module::Build is installed.
  Without it,the following steps will fail.

  Other modules required by DIS are:

  IO::File			File::Path
  IO::Pipe			File::Where
  Carp				File::Which
  Expect			Date::Format
  Error				Parallel::ForkManager
  Getargs::Longa	Term::ReadKey
  Getopt::Simple	IO:Stty
  File::Basename	Crypt::SKey
  Log::Log4Perl		Sys::Hostname

Installation Instructions

  Please reference the "INSTALL PATHS" section in the Module::Build 
  documentation for an explanation of installation path directives.
  
  % perldoc Module::Build

  % perl Build.PL
  % ./Build
  % ./Build install

  It is recommended that etc/system.disrc.sample be copied to a sensible
  location, such as /usr/local/etc/system.disrc , and that system shell
  skeleton files set the environment variable DISCONFIG to that location.

  Additionally, within the system shell skeleton files, administrators
  may wish to set the environment variable DISUSERNAME to equal the
  environment variable $USER, and/or include $PREFIX/bin within the
  path.

Caveats:

  Crypt::SKey requires several modules, though does not explicitly 
  install them via CPAN, and thus fails installation itself.  To solve,
  simply install them by hand:

  % sudo cpan -i Digest::MD4 Digest::SHA1
