For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
EXpect:storing multiple names to print out

Posted by skumar003 (skumar003), 17 February 2003
PLease consider the following:

I am trying to get all the names of failed cases
if { $x != 0 } {

     incr current_failed
     incr num_failed

     write_log "Case: $current_tc -> Failed!\n"

     set failed_tc  $current_tc
   } else {

     incr num_passed

     incr current_passed

     write_log "Case: $current_tc -> Passed!\n"



If there is one failed then it will return that. How do I handle if there are more than1 failed and I get all failed names. Th eabove code returns the most recent failed case and prints that name.

I think we need to know more to answer your question; no doubt there will be some sort of loop involved - perhaps through a list in a variables?   The sample code is just a single case that gives no clue as to how the incoming data expands from the singular to plural case.

I have the proc which contains the above code.
Everytime this procedure is called it checks for Passed or failed. and then return those which failed.

Yes, but we don't have the proc that contains the code - we just have the code snippet that works on a single variable and we don't know how it can contain several pieces of information.  So we don't have enough information to answer the question of make any suggestions, I'm afraid.
