I didn't know that how to send arrow keys using expect, hence I generated autoexpect script for all the arrow keys and found out that autoexpect generates this character for right arrow key:
send -- "^[\[C"
I used the same send command in my custom script and I'm getting a following error:
while executing "send -- "^[\[C" expect eof " (file "script_auto.exp" line 38)
What exactly shall I do to send the right arrow key. Any help would be appreciated.
"^[\[C" is an invalid string in
^[ should be the
ESC char which is
\033. So try this:
The safest way to get the correct RIGHT ARROW key for current terminal (as in
$TERM) is to use
[bash] # v=$(tput cuf1) [bash] # printf '%q\n' "$v" $'\E[C' [bash] #
To know what
cuf1 means, run
man terminfo and search for it. :)
