Try this:

#>cd ~
#>ssh-keygen -t dsa
#>scp .ssh/id_dsa.pub remotehost:.ssh/authorized_keys
#>ssh remotehost

Then use perl to control scp.  Enjoy..

I use this pretty routinely.  If you're getting a request for password
you haven't set up your rhostsrsa authentication properly.  I can't
really think of a better way to transfer files around automatically
(unless it's rsync over ssh).

In the desert of my mind
And I don't remember what it was
