More Info
The Perl Expect module was inspired more by the functionality of Tcl/Expect than any previous Expect-like tool such as Comm.pl or chat2.pl.

The Tcl version of Expect is a creation of Don Libes (libes@nist.gov) and can be found at http://expect.nist.gov/. Don has written an excellent in-depth tutorial of Tcl/Expect, which is Exploring Expect_. It is the O'Reilly book with the monkey on the front. Don has several references to other articles on the Expect web page.

I try to stay as close to Tcl/Expect in interface and semantics as possible (so I can refer questions to the Tcl/Expect docu). Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

You can access this library by adding the line

use lib qw(/usr/pack/expect-perl-1.15-to/lib/perl);
