Script Display

Posted by mansoorx (mansoorx), 8 May 2006
       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#"
send "sh int des | in Fa0/3\r"

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.
