How can I write expect in Perl?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Once upon a time, there was a library called chat2.pl (part of the standard perl distribution), which never really got finished. If you find it somewhere, don't use it. These days, your best bet is to look at the Expect module available from CPAN, which also requires two other modules from CPAN, IO::Pty and IO::Stty.

[1nickt]: I note DateTime::Format:: Flexible, announced immediately below this box in the CPAN feed
[Corion]: 1nickt: That one sounds sensible as it will tell you when it found an error
[1nickt]: Throws on error, I believe
[1nickt]: But should handle month as number or word
[TCLion]: I am breaking down the line and putting the date in the correct order during output
[TCLion]: at least that's the plan
[1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
[TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
[1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
