I am the author of expect-lite <expect-lite.sf.net> which relies heavily
on expect. The version in the cygwin repository is quite old (from
2003). I have compiled a modern version of expect (v 5.45) based on TCL 8.5.
Expect, originally written by Don Libes, is a program that "talks" to
other interactive programs 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 provides
branching and high-level control structures to direct the dialogue. In
addition, the user can take control and interact directly when desired,
afterward returning control to the script.
This is a direct replacement for the 2003 version, and can be found at:
