in reply to Buffer, buffering my problem

I haven't used it myself, but Expect was made to solve this kind of problem. I imagine you would be well served to investigate that tool/lib.

    Except that Expect was not made for windows :(

      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...

      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)...

      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.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
