As I mentioned I was doing, I've ported my 3Com SuperStack utility to the
HP ProCurve 4000 et al. The configuration language is basically the same
as before. This version does everything using Tnm; there's no expect used
at all. It does everything the SuperStack version does, and in addition
knows how to set ports' spanning-tree modes.

The motivation for this, as before, was twofold: to have a configuration
file which could be backed up automatically and downloaded easily; and to
make it straightforward for our technicians to do the kind of simple
reconfiguration they need without having to learn their way around the
telnet interface. And because the configuration language is basically the
same between the two versions of the utility there's less training needed.

You can pick it up from http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/gdmr/pcScan.tar.gz
(the SuperStack version is .../ssScan.tar.gz).

Comments, patches, suggestions etc invited.

And thanks to Juergen and other Tnm contributors for a package that's easy
to use and yet remarkably powerful.
