Thanks, they look good. I think I'll join.

Not good. This module is actually for parsing VT100 commands. But it
won't convince the other side that I have VT100 on my side.

Well, I'm actually running the script on windows, for now. Anyway, in
the Net::Telnet documentation it's written that binmode=0 will translate
LF+CR to \n. (there is no real connection to perl native command
binmode, it's just a parameter in the module) and I still have CR in the
beginning of every line.
