RedHat scp script not working

Hi all,

I am in the process of writing shell script to copy the files from one server to another.
Manually I have successfully copied the files from other server.

Now I am in the process of writing shell script for the same.
While browsing I had found the below script

Code:
#!/usr/bin/expect
        spawn scp  user@xx.x.x.x:/exceptions.csv destinationpath
        set pass "newpass"
        expect {
        password: {send "$pass\r"; exp_continue}
                  }

But on the execution of the below code I got the below errors

Code:
scptest.sh: line 2: spawn: command not found
couldn't read file "{": no such file or directory
scptest.sh: line 5: password:: command not found
scptest.sh: line 5: exp_continue}: command not found
scptest.sh: line 6: syntax error near unexpected token `}'
scptest.sh: line 6: `

Also I dont know what the "expect" and spawn means ?

Could anyone please help me out ?

Regards,
J
