Expect is a program that "talks" to other interactive pro-
grams according to a script. Following the script, Expect
knows what can be expected from a program and what the
correct response should be. An interpreted language pro-
vides branching and high-level control structures to
direct the dialogue. In addition, the user can take con-
trol and interact directly when desired, afterward return-
ing control to the script.
