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.
calling procedures

Posted by sharmila (sharmila), 14 November 2005
I have made several procedures in an Expect file.
I want to access these procedures from a different Expect program of the same process.
How to do this?
Please help me...

I'm not sure that I understand "A different expect program on the same process".  Can you explain please?

Posted by Custard (Custard), 15 November 2005
Maybe he means he wants to 'source' a library of expect functions into a script?

Something like...
source ./lib/a_library_file.tcl       ;# Global consts



Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 15 November 2005
Yes, I thought of offering "source" to read the same file of functions into two different expect programs, but I was worried that the questioner was (pehaps) asking about connecting two expect processes both to the same spawned process ... perhaps to make twice the use of the response ....

Posted by sharmila (sharmila), 15 November 2005
My problem was related to "source" command.
I got the answer now.
Once again, thanks for ur help...
