Guess I didn't explain my problem
clearly enough. I'm unable to execute a an expect script via a
web page. The page executes but the line with expect acts as if
it's commented out or as if httpd.conf is missing something that
allows expect to run.
I've tried (via page.php):
a href=cgi-bin/xyz.cgi ClickHere (with /usr/bin/expect
nothing. However running the expect script from the command line
in php: $out = shell_exec ("<path>/script.exp");
set timeout 10
spawn telnet <ipaddress>
Found something on the web saying Apache/browser(?) doesn't like
how expect starts out - need to strip script down and do the spawn
bit. Any who life is good.
