( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi Monks I am writing a perl script using to ssh into a system and run a whole bunch of linux commands to automatically install our application. I want to execute next step only if the previous step returns the appropriate match for the shell prompt I am stuck with a regular expression match for the shell prompt- This is what i have so far. and I am stuck at the last step since it is not matching it. Am i taking the right approach and also can u please let me know what i have goofed up here to match root@ ~#
$exp->expect($timeout, [ qr'login: $', sub { $spawn_ok = 1; my $fh = shift; $fh->send("$sshUsername\n"); exp_continue; } ], [ 'password: $', sub { my $fh = shift; print $fh "$sshPWD\n"; exp_continue; } ], # I need your help here [ qr'/[root@]$/' => sub { my $fh = shift; print " +regular exp matched \n"; $fh->send("cd /u0x/tmp\n"); exp_continue; } ] );
