Using Expect output in a script.

I'm unsure how to break down and use what is returned by expect in the
rest of my script. I want to issue a command and split the results of
that command into several different variables. I then want to use
those variables in the rest of my script. Here is a snipet:

$expcxn = Expect->spawn("telnet\r") or die "Cannot spawn
telnet: $!\n\n";
$expcxn->expect($timeout, "assword:") or die "Did not get a password
prompt: $!/n/n";
print $expcxn "thepassword\r";
$expcxn->expect($timeout, "go>") or die "Did not get command prompt:
print $expcxn "show info $ARGV[0]\r";
$expcxn->expect($timeout, "go>") or die "Did not get command prompt:

The 'show info' command is what produces the info I want to split and
use. What do I have to do to get whatever is returned and put it into
variables I can use in other commands?
