SYNOPSIS

    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use Net::FTP;
    use credsman qw(login);

    # This type of function is necessary to run login, 
    # You need to handle the access or connection and Error messages

    sub Connect_Example {
        my $credentials = shift;
        # Here your code to login or connect using user and password
        if( $credentials->{user} eq 'pepe' and  $credentials->{password} eq 'pepepass' ){
            print "The Target Name is: $credentials->{target}\n";
            print "  User  : $credentials->{user}\n";
            print "  Pass  : $credentials->{password}\n";
            print "Attempt : $credentials->{attempt} of $credentials->{limit}\n"; 
            # Return 0 - Success
            return 0;
        }
        else{
            print "Fail\n";
            # Return to fail
            return 1;
        }
    }

    # In this Example the program will die at the attempt number 10.

    die "No Zero Return" if login( 
        program  => 'credsman',          # The Prefix to Store the credentials in wcm 
        target   => "Test",              # The Target to validate user and password, usually a server
        subref   => \&Connect_Example,   # Reference to a Function (how to validate password)
        limit    => 10,                  # Number of Attempts before the program Finish
    );

    # This Example will connect to FTP and Return the object to the function.
    # Option undefine:   you need to combine with the inherit hash reference

    sub Connect_FTP {
        my $credentials = shift;
        # Here your code to login or connect using user and password
        # The given Parameter has the {inherit} key, if you pass it the function
          will return the inherit to evaluate.
        
        my $ftp = Net::FTP->new("$credentials->{target}", Debug => 0)
            or die "Cannot connect to some.host.name: $@";
        
        my $status = $ftp->login("$credentials->{user}",$credentials->{password});

        if( ! $status ){
            print "Attempt : $credentials->{attempt} of $credentials->{limit}\n"; 
            print "$credentials->{user} cannot login ".$ftp->message ."\n";
            return 1;
        }

        ${$credentials->{inherit}} = $ftp;

        return 0; # Success
    }
   
    
    my $ftp = Connect_FTP( 
        program  => 'credsman',          # The Prefix to Store the credentials in wcm 
        target   => "Test",              # The Target to validate user and password, usually a server
        subref   => \&Connect_FTP,       # Reference to a Function (how to validate password)
        limit    => 3,                   # Number of Attempts before the program Finish
        undefine => 1,                   # To use with inherit, when you need to pass the object.
    );
