Autoit and Hummingbird Exceed xterm

Recommended Posts


Hi I am automating some of my daily tasks with AutoIt and one of them includes:

1. logging in to a unix server, running a script.

2. wait for the unix prompt

3. run another script, grab the output and "grep" for a keyword, then exit the Exceed client (xterm)

Step one works fine but I am stuck at waiting for the prompt. (main problem is I don't know how to grab and parse the output from the xterm window so I dont know when the ksh script finishes.)

Anyone have experience with sending unix commands via Exceed from a windows box and grabbing the output?

I suggest using puTTY and setting puTTY options to log output. They you'll have the output to parse.

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.
