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.

prevent echo

Posted by shafa.fahad (shafa.fahad), 5 September 2006

I am using expect to login to a remote machine and execute command over there. By doing so, when i execute a command the results are getting displayed in my terminal.

I would like to know how to prevent this results from getting displayed in terminal. I have already implemented assigning these results to a variable  and then writing to a file by which it can be used later for my analysis

the problem is that, I have to login to say 10 machines and get the results appended to a file. so each time I login to a machine and execute command, my terminal shows all the results which obviously is not wanted....

Thanks in advance,

The command

log_user 0

turns off the display and

log_user 1

turns it back on
