in thread Buffer, buffering my problem
Once again, I am no expert on Expect, but a simple Google turned-up a link to "Expect for Windows" ports, some of which are native (non-Cygwin). Of course YMMV, but one of these ports may be an option...http://expect.nist.gov/#windows
Also, while the commentary is far from reassuring, the following link indicates that Expect-1.15 from CPAN can be used under Windows, if you can install Cygwin and use its Perl (which sucks, but that's life)...http://search.cpan.org/~rgiersig/Expect-1.15/Expect.pod#Can_I_use_this_module_with_ActivePerl_on_Windows?
Yes...I know these "solutions" are definitely suboptimal, but the statement that Expect "was not made for windows" is hugely misleading, given these options, which took only a bit of Googling to find.
