Expect is a freely available software facility/programming language that allows you to automate pretty much any interactive task. Don Libes, who began writing Expect in 1990, puts it more tersely: "Expect [is a] software suite for automating interactive tools." It allows a system administrator to create scripts that provide input to commands and programs that would otherwise "expect" -- or demand -- their input from the "terminal" (traditionally /dev/tty) . Such input would otherwise need to be supplied by a human user or system administrator. Expect can send the proper input at the appropriate time to such programs without any user intervention; it can even make decisions about how to respond to successive prompts based upon the previous responses and/or whatever other factors and logic you have chosen to supply to the script.
