2 questions: expect & shell scripting
I have a couple of questions/requests. Some variation of these may already be in place and I just don't know about it, so I'm asking.
First, is it possible to set up some kind of a macro that will automatically run anytime a certain word is shown in a securecrt terminal? Right now I have vbs scripts set up to log me in to various servers and network devices. What would be nice is if "password:" came up on the screen, I could tell securecrt to automatically enter in a given password. This can be set to happen on initial login through the expect function in the session options, but I want it to happen each time the word comes up on the screen, not just upon initial login. Another terminal emulation program, ZOC, has the ability to do this, but I'd prefer to stick with securecrt since I've been an avid user for a couple of years now.
Second, are there any plans in the future to incorporate any kind of unix/linux shell functionality into securecrt? Some sort of ability to write macros in a unix/linux type language (bash, ksh, rexx, or something of that nature).
