ssh2_shell --  Request an interactive shell


resource ssh2_shell ( resource session [, string term_type [, array env [, int width [, int height [, int width_height_type]]]]] )

Open a shell at the remote end and allocate a stream for it. term_type should correspond to one of the entries in the target system's /etc/termcap file and defaults to vanilla. env may be passed as an associative array of name/value pairs to set in the target environment.

width, and height define the width and height of the virtual terminal allocated for the shell process. width_height_type should be one of SSH2_TERM_UNIT_CHARS or SSH2_TERM_UNIT_PIXELS.

Example 1. Executing a command

$connection = ssh2_connect('shell.example.com', 22);
ssh2_auth_password($connection, 'username', 'password');

$stream = ssh2_shell($connection, 'vt102', null, 80, 24, SSH2_TERM_UNIT_CHARS);
