Q1: Is there a way to use this module with perl? A1: Yes, I do this myself. Install the python package as you normally would and import it into perl with Inline.pm and Inline::Python from CPAN.
Q2: When I use find_children(“interface GigabitEthernet3/2”), I’m getting all interfaces beginning with 3/2, including 3/21, 3/22, 3/23 and 3/24. How can I limit my results? A2. There are two ways… the simplest is to use the ‘exactmatch’ option… find_children(“interface GigabitEthernet3/2”, exactmatch=True). Another way is to utilize regex expansion that is native to many methods… find_children(“interface GigabitEthernet3/2$”)
