ccrypt with expect
Posted by neo (The Architect), 27 August 2005Has anyone written an expect script that uses 'ccrypt' to encrypt a file.
I tried expecting the 'Enter encryption key: ' but the password that I send is then displayed on the screen.

worked for me ....
Posted by neo (The Architect), 27 August 2005I'm using CYGWIN and the code you gave did not work.
It just hangs, I removed the log_user 0 and then saw the password being typed out in plaintext.

Expect sits on top of the applications and operating system, and as such it needs fine tuning and adjustment sometimes. Have a careful look at how the script runs without the log_user line and that should lead you to learn where it's failing in more detail, and from that it should lead you to a solution. I'm afraid I don't have Cygwyn to hand, so I can't easily help further with this issue that has turned out to be OS specific.
Posted by neo (The Architect), 29 August 2005I am using the -K option to specify the password along with the command right now.
I have another (not actually related) doubt though.
Can I pause my script halfway and ask the user for a password and then resume the script?
but it just keeps on in the loop.

Sorry - I mis-spelled that. Should have been deferred rather than deffered. It DID look a bit odd that other way, didn't it?
Posted by neo (The Architect), 11 September 2005Yeah it did.
And yeah I still don't understand it too.
