is it possible in expect script

I created a script wherein it will change password of a user


spawn passwd [lindex $argv 0]
set password [lindex $argv 1]
expect "New UNIX password:"
send "$password\r"
expect "Retype new UNIX password:"
send "$password\r"
expect eof
My simple but noob question is can I run this script without any output. What I mean is run the script in quite mode. I don't want to output anything when I run the script. When I run the script, it output the messages found on passwd.

Put the statement
log_user 0
at the point where you don't want to see any output.

Before putting that in, put
exp_internal 1
at the start of the program to enable debugging. Remove it if your program is running correctly.
