      Well, I guess the CPAN site I pointed to doesn't have really up-to-date documentation... More recent docs for are here, and would be helpful if you haven't already seen them. As for examples, the Expect package comes with a bunch of "tutorial" code, which can be seen here. (Link to web view of CVS; click on the reversion number to view anyone of those docs quickly...)
