8.32: How can I write expect in Perl?

Once upon a time, there was a library called chat2.pl (part of the
standard perl distribution), which never really got finished. If you
find it somewhere, *don't use it*. These days, your best bet is to look
at the Expect module available from CPAN, which also requires two other
modules from CPAN, "IO::pty" and "IO::Stty".

The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
perlfaq.pod.
