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.
Long expect command is appearing slowly

Posted by sarmstro (sarmstro), 7 November 2005

I have a test automation framework written in expect and I recently ported it from a Debian machine to a Red Hat machine.

One of the tests sends a long SNMP command as part of its setup. On the Debian machine this long command appeared pretty much instantly on the screen and there were no problems. On the Red Hat machine the long command is scrolling across the screen as it is being sent, and this seems to cause the snmp server the process is acting with, to time out. I am not using the -s switch with send.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

log_user 0
as I'm sure you can't read the output as it flashes by!
