autoexpect?


Dear All
I found the 'autoexpect' as a powerful tool for automating remote telnet jobs.But my Linux server does not contain it. Can you please let me know where can I find its rpm package to install on mine?
Thank you

well autoexpect is part of the expect package. I found it to be pretty poor though, and if you're using it with any regularity you should really write a proper expect script. and of course you should NOT be using telnet itself unless it is totally unavoidable.

Thank you for your reply. So why my linux server contains 'expect' but it does not contain 'autoexpect' ? How can I add 'autoexpect'?
