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.

       When i run Expect script , it start to display every command which i add in the script, if i dont want to see these commands during execution , just execute in the backend, what can i do.

This is the script:

spawn telnet
expect "Username:"
send "abcr"
expect "Password:"
send "123\r"
expect "switch>"
send "enable\r"
expect "Password:"
send "123\r"
expect "switch#"

To turn off the echo, use the command

log_user 0

Is there a way to prevent the output from echoing to the screen but still have the output logged to a file? I am using log_user 0 and then log_file but this is preventing any output from reaching my log file.

I found the answer...

log_file -a filename

will apparently ensure that suppressed output makes it into the file still.
