Operating Systems Linux How do I capture responses from the chat command? Post 302494389 by Bashingaway on Monday 7th of February 2011 06:26:54 AM
How do I capture responses from the chat command?

Unfortunately googling the word 'chat' gives you zebedee billion responses that relate to everything and few of them refer to the linux chat command. I've read the man page and found a couple of examples but can't see how to do this.

I want to query the modem for it's manufacturer, product id and firmware version using AT commands. I can get the modem to respond as expected to the commands if initiated using chat, however I can't see how to get the response into a bash variable for me to work on it.

for example

Code:
chat -V -s '' 'AT+CGMI' 'OK' '' > $COMPORT < $COMPORT

gives me the onscreen response I am looking for, however using a RESPONSEVALUE=`chat....` just gives me an empty variable.

Any ideas anyone?
