So, I dropped back to plain boring perl. I'm just reading lines from STDIN, and when I see the prompts I want, I'm printing things to STDOUT. However, it doesn't seem to be working. As far as I can tell, the things I print to STDOUT aren't getting passed across the socket (in this case, a connection "type host")
Okay. I'm not totally sure what happened. I think it was a buffering problem. I think I was buffering the output, and it wasn't getting sent. I tripped across fixing it, and now have it working using select, sysread, and syswrite.
Someday, I may get back to trying to use Expect to do it in what is likely a more "right way," but.
