Ubuntu STDIO redirect help.

2017-01-10  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:179 


I'm writing a GUI for rsync, ssh and a few other things on Windows.
Basically I'm launching tcsh -i, and redirecting stdout stderr and stdin.

The problem is that when ssh prompts for a password, that doesn't seem to fall under stdout or stderr. I have no idea how to get hold of this string so that I know when to send the password.

Does anyone know how I can merge these prompts with stdout so that I can read them in my program.

For example, these commands successfully redirect stdout and stderr to a file.
ls &> test
zzz &> test

But in this example, the "[email protected]'s password:" prompt is displayed in the terminal and as such, isn't of any use to me.
ssh [email protected] &> test

Any ideas would be appreciated.
