26 <para>The <application>Expect</application> package contains tools for
27 automating, via scripted dialogues, interactive applications such as
28 <command>telnet</command>, <command>ftp</command>,
29 <command>passwd</command>, <command>fsck</command>,
30 <command>rlogin</command>, and <command>tip</command>.
31 <application>Expect</application> is also useful for testing these same
32 applications as well as easing all sorts of tasks that are prohibitively
33 difficult with anything else. The <application>DejaGnu</application>
34 framework is written in <application>Expect</application>.</para>
