still problems with expect

i've got my script running simple stuff but it doesn't recognize any of my expect commands. right now i'm getting:

./ spawn: command not found
expect: invalid option -- r
usage: expect [-div] [-c cmds] [[-f] cmdfile] [args]

could someone tell me if i've forgotten to configure or update or place expect and tcl like i should.....or if there is any "tag" i've forogtten.




DATE=`date +%m-%d-%y`

spawn "scp $BPATH/test1 remotedrive1"
expect -re "remotedrive1 password:"
send "*********\r"

cd $BPATH/

#/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i << EOF
#To: root
#Subject: test

echo "hello"
#exit 1

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
