Expect is quickly becoming a part of every UNIX user's toolbox. It allows you to automate Telnet, FTP, passwd, rlogin, and hundreds of other applications that normally require human interaction. Using Expect to automate these applications will allow you to speed up tasks and, in many cases, solve new problems that you never would have even considered before. For example, you can use Expect to test interactive programs with no changes to their interfaces.

Explore a preview version of Exploring Expect right now. Expect is quickly becoming a part of every UNIX user's toolbox. It allows you to automate Telnet, FTP, passwd, rlogin, and hundreds of other applications that normally require human interaction. Using Expect to automate these applications will allow you to speed up tasks and, in many cases, solve new problems that you never would have even considered before. For example, you can use Expect to test interactive programs with no changes to their interfaces.
Or wrap interactive programs with Motif-like front-ends to control applications by buttons, scrollbars, and other graphic elements with no recompilation of the original programs.
You don't even need the source code! Expect works with remote applications, too. Don Libes is the creator of Expect as well as the author of this book. In Exploring Expect , he provides a comprehensive tutorial on all of Expect's features, allowing you to put it immediately to work on your problems. In a down-to-earth and humorous style, he provides numerous examples of challenging real-world applications and how they can be automated using Expect to save you time and money.
Expect is the first of a new breed of programs based on Tcl, the Tool Command Language that is rocking the computer science community. This book provides an introduction to Tcl and describes how Expect applies Tcl's power to the new field of interaction automation. Whether your interest is in Expect or interaction automation or you simply want to learn about Tcl and see how it has been used in real software, you will find Exploring Expect a treasure trove of easy-to-understand and valuable information.

Exploring Expect: A Tcl-based Toolkit for Automating Interactive Programs
Exploring EXPECT : A TCL Based Toolkit for Automating Interactive Programs
For all of you who thought that the Expect man page was too long and too terse at the same time, this book provides relief. Numerous examples are provided and explained, demonstrating how to save you time and money. Example topics include how to write patterns, handle signal s, use Expect as a telnet able daemon , and use Expect with Tk and other Tcl extension s. The book also includes an innovative introduction to Tcl - if you've had trouble using Tcl before, all of a sudden, it will make a lot more sense. And while Exploring Expect concentrates primarily on using Expect with Tcl, programmers attempting to automate interactive programs using C , Perl , Python , or any other language will find this book helpful because many of the concepts underlying Expect-like programming are common to all languages. Exploring Expect was originally based on Tcl 7. But Don wrote very carefully and it is not surprising that this book is still accurate to Tcl - except in a couple places.
