       expectk - Expect with Tk support


       expectk [ args ]


       Expectk  is a combination of Expect with Tk.  (See their respective man
       pages for a more comprehensive explanation of either.)  Expectk  should
       run any wish or Expect script (with minor changes - see below).

       The differences between the Expectk and Expect environment follows.

       The  send command is Tk’s.  Expect’s send command can be invoked by the
       name exp_send.   (For  compatibility,  Expect  allows  either  send  or
       exp_send to be used.)

       Scripts  may  be  invoked  implicitly  on  systems which support the #!
       notation by marking the script executable, and making the first line in
       your script:

            #!/usr/local/bin/expectk -f

       Of  course,  the  path  must  accurately  describe where Expectk lives.
       /usr/local/bin is just an example.
