Post by wol » Sat, 21 Oct 1995 04:00:00

        I want to pass an string in which contains a '$'
        like aa$bcd , from shell to Expect, however
        Expect gets "aa" , or if i pass it like

        bash>expect_script 'aa$bcd'

        then Expect gets '{aa$bcd}'

        is there any way to slove this ?
        thanks in advance!!!

1. script questions - passing argument as argument to another program


I have a script that I want to take an argument and pass it to the
passwd program.

1.  How in any situation do I take an argument in a script and pass it
to a program?  I can type the command in like: passwd $1 , but I do
not know how to simulate the enter key being pressed at that point.

2.  How do I allow other users to run this script?  I want the script
itself to execute as root when run since there are commands only root
may run, and I will only give other people in a certain group the
ability to execute the script.

3.  Is there a way to associate a file with multiple groups?

Thank you for your time.
