I have corrected the code line and now I just need to dump information to a data file text. I set the output option to open "ASR $ now.txt" "w" but I'm still getting an error. What information do I need to work?

#!/usr/bin/expect -f

set timeout -1
spawn $env(SHELL)
match_max 100000
expect -exact "use@home:~\$ "
send -- "telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
expect -exact "telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
send -- "\r"
expect -exact "\r
