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.

Iam calling a expect script with machine Ip address as a parameter from a perl script. It logins to the machine I need to login.  

I need to export certain variables in the machine. The Info about the values to be exported is present in a flat file for all the machines in below format.

exort ISP=
export IP=
export VB=

export ISP=
export IP=

Now I can write a perl script and then take the Info coreesponding to the machine I need and store it in a array and pass this also as an argument to expect script.
Iam Not sure how to read the contents of array in expect script.

It will be really helpful If  there are any other better Idea of acheiving the above requiremnt!!
