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.
Reading from Expect out buffer

Posted by skumar003 (skumar003), 3 February 2003
The output buffer contains something like this

"name="my name", tel=123-456-7890.
How do I have expect ignore the space in it.

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 4 February 2003
You can't have expect ignore spaces - it puts them into the output match string, expect_out, etc, and you then write your Tcl code to match them where they might be.  If you have Tcl 8.2 or later, then the regular expression [[:space:]]* will match zero or more white spaces for you.
