Expect is a tcl extension for automating interactive applications such
as telnet, ftp, passwd, fsck, rlogin, tip, etc.  Expect is also useful
for testing the named applications.  Expect makes it easy for a script
to control another program and interact with it.
Install the expect package if you'd like to develop scripts which interact
with interactive applications.  You'll also need to install the tcl
