Don Libes' Exploring Expect[1] is a devops classic (if there is such a thing). It would be nice if O'Reilly would make the text (completely) freely accessible[2], as they have done with some of their other older titles[3].

See also the Caius framework[4].

Don Libes' Exploring Expect[1] is a devops classic (if there is such a thing). Highly recommended for those wondering what Tcl is (still) good for! It would be nice if O'Reilly would make the text (completely) freely accessible[2], as they have done with some their other older titles[3].

Expect is still pretty nice:

Exploring Expect by Don Libes, the principal author of Expect, is a classic among tech books:

Expect[1] (a Tcl-based tool) is still quite useful despite its age, and Don Libes' book[2] is a devops classic (if there is such a thing). The examples directory[3] from expect's source code repository should help you get the flavor of good Tcl programming.

`brew install expect`

`apt-get install expect`

Readily available on many other platforms as well, including Windows.
