I hope this helps you . I have an array in my bash script: , The correct syntax to interpolate the array's values would be
code :
array set param ${my_file[@]}
array set param a.txt b.txt c.txt d.txt e.txt
array set param {one one.txt two two.txt}
/usr/bin/expect <<EOF
set timeout -1
spawn sftp $sftp_option $user@$host
expect "Password:"
send "$pswd\r"
expect "sftp>"
foreach arg {${my_file[@]}} {
 send "mget $arg*\r"
 expect "sftp>"
send "bye\r"

Formatting Expect Script Inside of User Command in Bash Script

I hope this helps . Might be an issue with timeout here... not sure how long the installer takes.
The default expect timeout is 10 seconds, if it doesn't see the expected text in that time, it will proceed regardless, you could change the timeout values like so:
code :
expect -timeout 100 $INSTALL_PATH_REQUEST
 expect -timeout 320 "Install Complete."

wish helps you You can read the file within your expect script.
Open the file and assign the file descriptor to a variable, read each line and execute the above code you wrote.
code :
set fildes [open "myhosts.txt" r]
set ip [gets $fildes]
while {[string length $ip] > 0} {

    spawn telnet $ip
    expect "User Name :"
    send "username\r"

    expect "Password  :"
    send "password\r"
    expect ">"
    send "4\r"
    expect "*#"
    set ip [gets $fildes]
close $fildes

Hope that helps When using a here document (< code :

    expect "Enter passphrase for key 'id_rsa':"
    send "password\n"
    sleep 3
    log_file XMGcheck.log
    expect "~"
    send "cat /reg/nv/system/serial|sed \x22s/\x24/,/g\x22 ; tail -n 50 /usr/log/ams.log|grep -i xmg|wc -l \n"
    expect eof

for x in $IP

    spawn ssh -i /home/location/id_rsa root@172.17.26.$x

    expect eof


Exiting bash script for loop on expect script expect error

To fix this issue A bash for loop will not fail if part of its body returns non-zero. You have to explicitly test for it, and handle it. For example:
code :
for role in $user_roles
            expect_scripts/users.exp $role"1" $role $user_email $password
            if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then 
                 exit 1; 
for role in $user_roles
            expect_scripts/users.exp $role"1" $role $user_email $password || exit 1
