This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Taking Control from Expect and returning control?

Posted by shafa.fahad (FahaD), 18 September 2006
Hi,

I believe that "Interact" command lets the expect script transfer the control to user

I would like to know if it is possible to implement expect script in the following way,

while exectuting the script, on a possible occurance of cetain results from a process, Pass the control to user to let them do whatever manual operation they would like to do and if user types "Ctrl X" or some control signals the control is passed back to the script to continue its processing

Thanks
Fahad

Yes. Use interact, match a pattern, and return when you get it. See http://www.wellho.net/resources/ex.php4?item=t242/tcenhance for an example.
