The Perl Expect module was inspired more by the functionality of
Tcl/Expect than any previous Expect-like tool such as Comm.pl or
The Tcl version of Expect is a creation of Don Libes (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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);
