capturing standard error for a spawned process
Posted by sarathy_groups (sarathy_groups), 13 October 2005Hi all,
Does anyone have an example of capturing the standard error for a spawned process in Expect? The process is displaying an error message that I want to return to the user.
let me elaborate u :
I have a process that, when I run it in the shell, returns an error message (because I'm forcing an error condition). If I run that same process inside my Expect script, I do not see the error message. Is there some variable within Expect that I can access that would contain that error message? Turning on exp_internal does not help me in my situation.
Help me Expect Guru's
Thanks in Advance,
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 13 October 2005The way I've seen this done before is to run the process in question within a spawned telnet and to use the shell to echo out the return status. If you look back a couple of pages, I think you'll find the discussion here on Opentalk; I'm on a slower and timelimited link this morning to I can't do that further research for you at this stage, I'm afraid
