    Thanks for your response! It was indeed a CCSID problem. I changed the root directory of /usr/local/bin to 819 then re-extracted as per the below

    CALL QP2TERM
    $ cd /tmp
    $ uncompress tcl.8.4.9.tar.Z
    $ uncompress expect.5.43.tar.Z
    $ cd /
    $ tar xf /tmp/tcl.8.4.9.tar
    $ tar xf /tmp/expect.5.43.tar
    $ ln -s /qopensys/usr/bin/stty /usr/local/bin/stty

    It now works perfectly!

    The PASE environment runs Unix programs and scripts, and they aren't going to understand EBCDIC, so you can't use ccsid 285.

    Configuring EXPECT and TCL on IBMi

    Hello,
    I have been configuring SFTP on a new IBMi.

    It works great on the current IBMi (Installed many many years ago!) . On the new system when the script is executed i receive the below error:

    001-0050 Syntax error on line 1: token ")" not expected.

    The script is as follows:

    PATH=úPATH:/usr/local/bin && expect -f /Aquatmp/exp_236953.inp

    This same error occurs whatever I enter for the file parameter, even junk characters or leave it blank so i do not think its an issue with the script.

    Has anyone experienced this issue before? I am guessing its a character translation issue or perhaps an issue with the installation of EXPECT/TCL tools?.

    On the working IBMi the /usr/local/bin folder has a ccsid of 819 but on the new system it is set at 285. Could this be the issue?

    I thought I had installed Expect and TCL correctly as i downloaded expect.5.43.tar.Z and tcl.8.4.9.tar.Z. Uncompressed them both via QSH and ran "tar xf".

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!
Working...
