I need to get the output from a Exepct send command and then process the output, but couldn't find a good way to do it.
More precisely, I have:
==============================
$exp->send("ls\n");
my $ls = $exp->expect(20);

for (split /\n/, $ls ){
print "$_";
 }
===========================
It seems to me that the $ls contains no entry at all; help, anyone?

expect command return an array. So  you try and see,


$exp->send("ls\n");
my @ls=$exp->expect(20);
print join("\n",@ls),"\n";

shanikawm,
I run the code and still see anything.

btw, I didn't mention that the $exp is using the sftp; not sure this will make thing different. is the output from ls (via Expect) going into tty? or std out?

I guess the code from shanikawm is working, it is just the format looks different from I expected. Thanks.
