My apologies -- I read the OP too hastily.

Again, will scp do the trick?

You are trying to use the $after_match to grab everything after a match. This is not the way Expect works. It will only read what it needs in order to match the pattern you specified. You need to match the end of the file and then take everything before the end.

#untested my $prompt = "my_unique_custom_prompt_aint_it_neat>"; $object->send("export PS1=$prompt\r"); $object->expect(10, $prompt); $object->send("cat file.txt\r"); $object->expect(10, $header); $object->expect(120, $prompt); my $contents = $object->before();

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
