`expect`? Is that a command? What is it?
"expect" is an automation tool that allows for unattended interaction with terminal-based programs. For example, you can set a loginUser and loginPassword, and when the output of the program displays "password:" it would throw the password.
It's pretty slick. I've used it for EMC Cloning for database environments (SDLC type tiers) where I clone production database LUNs (volume groups) down tiers.
(and, this is an old thread, but who cares.)
