Pexpect output !

Hi all.

Today i have download pexpect and started working on it. I want to access my cisco router and capture the output of "show version". So far i am successful in configuring the router. Pls check the script below

import pexpect
import sys

child=pexpect.spawn("ssh cisco@")

child.sendline("conf ter")

child.sendline("int loo 200")
child.logfile = sys.stdout

Now on my router, the configuration was done perfectly. Which means my pexpect script is working fine. But i am not able to get the following

1) I want to capture the output of 'show version' (or any other command) to a file. When i googled, the last bolded line seemed to be the solution but its not working. When i run the script, it simply runs and then i get the prompt again, no output of show version :-(

Pls someone guide me

I've never used pexpect, but I would guess that you need to set the logfile before running the commands.


pexpect, python
