[nycphp-talk] Running backtick commands and responding to stdout/in

Hey all,

I am attempting to run ssh (w/out the ssh2 module) by backticking commands 
from the command line.

$result = `ssh -l $userStr $hostStr`;

This line causes the script to display the enter password and php seems to 
let it go right to stdin/console.
Is there any way for php to catch this (since I know its comming) and enter 
the password?

Or must I install the ssh2 module and call ssh2_connect( )?
