python using regular expression - import re - in mac, linux
I`m trying to build a simple script, that execute command depending of previous outputs.
In order to accomplish this, i like to import and use RE - regular expression.

When i try to import re, the script dont work and dont give any error in MAC.
I also try in Linux and the script dont work.

Its possible to import re to work inside the secure CRT in MAC ?

example of the script:

# $language = "python"
# $interface = "1.0"

# basic collect info
# Miguel Valadares


szPrompt = 'Reload'
objTab = crt.GetScriptTab()
objTab.Screen.Synchronous = True
objTab.Screen.IgnoreEscape = True
objTab.Screen.Send( 'term len 0' + chr(13))
szCommand = 'show ver ' + chr(13)
szResult = objTab.Screen.ReadString(szPrompt)

Best Regards

Hi Miguel,

I am not sure why you are using import*re. I would expect this to work if you use import re.

Does this help to resolve the issue?

HI Tod,

Thank you, for your reply.

Now, its working.
I tested the script with import re, change to import*re and back to import re, and started to work !!!!!! :)

Do you know, why didn't work when i only used imported re ?

Best Regards

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the update. I am glad to hear that things are working for you now.

I haven't been able to reproduce a situation where import re failed, so I am not sure why it might have failed for you.
