EXPECT/TCL: the "source" command and passing arguments
Does anyone know how to pass parameters to Expect script if it is "source"ed from another Expect script?

For example, in an Expect script I have:

source "myOtherScript myArgument"

However I get error:

couldn't read file "myOtherScript myArgument": no such file or directory

Google did not give me anything useful...

Thanks a lot!

source takes one file and inserts it to the current script, like an include. it doesn't *run* the script, like you seem to be thinking it will there.

Or is there a way to invoke an Expect script from another, with some arguments?

Thanks Chris.

BTW another guru has informed me of this one:
