expectk(1) Expect with Tk support


expectk [ args ]


Expectk is a combination of Expect with Tk. (See their respective man pages for a more comprehensive explanation of either.) Expectk should run any wish or Expect script (with minor changes - see below).

The differences between the Expectk and Expect environment follows.

The send command is Tk's. Expect's send command can be invoked by the name exp_send. (For compatibility, Expect allows either send or exp_send to be used.)

Scripts may be invoked implicitly on systems which support the #! notation by marking the script executable, and making the first line in your script:

        #!/usr/local/bin/expectk -f

Of course, the path must accurately describe where Expectk lives. /usr/local/bin is just an example.
