Download Website 23 Aug 14:45 Expect-lite 4.1.2


expect-lite is an quick and easy command line automation tool. Written in expect, it is designed to directly map an interactive terminal session into an automation script. expect-lite scripts use special character(s) at the beginning of each line to indicate the action. Basic expect-lite scripts can be created by simply cutting and pasting text from a terminal window into a script, and adding '>' '<' characters. No knowledge of expect is required. Expect-lite is targeted at the verification testing environment, and will produce a Pass/Fail result at the end of the script. However, its use is not limited to this environment. It includes a powerful debugger with breakpoints, step/skip, and the ability to copy/paste expect-lite lines right into a running script.

Release Notes: @n (n=number) was fixed to set the timeout value from IDE (a problem with ssh user@192.168...). The *FORK display was fixed when "session" is part of the session name. The installer was updated with a "configure only" option, which just configures user account settings. A conditional test for undefined varibles was added.
