Expect is a program that performs programmed dialogue with other
interactive programs.  It is briefly described by its man page, expect(1).
It uses pseudo-tty's to control the child processes, so it is not affected
by programs that refuse to read from stdin or pipes. (eg: passwd(1) etc).
WWW: http://expect.sourceforge.net
To avoid conflicts, example scripts and man pages have been renamed by
prefixing them with "expect_".
They are in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/man/man1, respectively.
