I have a program which basically opens a new prompt, say like gnuplot would. now I want to be able to send commands to that prompt and retrieve the output and write it to a file.
anyone a suggestion on how to do that?
You'll be looking at script to record the session, and
expect for interaction.
Originally posted by quarry_06 i still don't understand your expect, but I found what I was looking for.
It is called a "here" function
and goes like this
can you still explain what your explain does/how it works?
I don't know how GNU Plot works ... here documents are
going to be fine for one-of activities. If you for example
have something that will ask something, expect input, do
some more, then ask something new expect is the tool
for you. ...

Good for you :) ... however, it would be a bit
much to ask of mods to learn all possible lingos
on the boards to make sure the contents is OK ;}
