Test::Expect is a module for automated driving and testing of
terminal-based programs.  It is handy for testing interactive programs
which have a prompt, and is based on the same concepts as the Tcl
Expect tool.  As in Expect::Simple, the Expect object is made
available for tweaking.
Test::Expect is intended for use in a test script.
