In reference to this:

Hello

How can I know when a program is executed when I do:

libssh2_channel_open_session()
libssh2_channel_request_pty()
libssh2_channel_shell()
libssh2_channel_write(<my command>)

... wait while command is executing ...

libssh2_channel_send_eof()
libssh2_channel_wait_eof()

Thanks for any advice,
Vti"

Should not the sequence be:
connect(sock....)
libssh2_session_init()
...authentication
libssh2_channel_open_session()
libssh2_channel_request_pty()
libssh2_channel_exec(channel,"/bin/date")

Now the command should complete when you get an EOF from the channel:
while {
      libssh2_channel_read();
      if (libssh2_channel_eof(channel)) {
          printf("EOF from remote side\n");
          break;
      }
}

libssh2_channel_close();
libssh2_channel_wait_closed(channel);

However I did not the output from the date command
