how to send the correct escape character in expect
Posted by innerchild (innerchild), 3 September 2006Hello,
I was wondering if someone could help me out with an issue.
I am writing a little script which logs into our out of band server.
so far so good but when i want to end the session i find myself having problems to send the ctrl + ] to return to telnet.
now i have read a lot of documentation on the internet but all suggested examples do not work for me.
I read a lot about sending escape characters but i can not get it working.
I need to get back to the telnet session because i use a script at work here which then will think the session is still open.
Even tried to kill the spawn process but that did not work either.
Could someone please help me out with this ?

As a "catch all", you can use hex codes in a double quotes container - for example "\x42" will give you B and I think it's something like "\x1d" for a ] character.
