Config::Model::OpenSsh enables cme command to edit OpenSSH
configuration files, namely, /etc/ssh/sshd_config, /etc/ssh/ssh_config (for
root) and ~/.ssh/config (for other users).
You can get extra functionality by installing some optional dependencies:
* A graphical OpenSSH file editor with libconfig-model-tkui-perl
* A curses OpenSSH file editor with libconfig-model-cursesui-perl
Comments of the files are preserved during edition. Comments can
be edited with the graphical interface and saved back in the
configuration files.
'cme check ssh' command can be used to validate the content of ssh*
configuration files.
