Summary: A Tool for Automating Interactive Programs
Expect is a tool primarily for automating interactive applications,
such as telnet, ftp, passwd, fsck, rlogin, tip, and more.  Expect
really makes this stuff trivial.  Expect is also useful for testing
these applications.  It is described in many books, articles, papers,
and FAQs.  There is an entire book on it available from O'Reilly.






* Mon May 10 2021 Reinhard Max <>
  - bsc#1183904, expect-errorfd.patch:
    errorfd file descriptors should be closed when forking
* Tue May 04 2021 Matthias Gerstner <>
  - fix previous change regarding PIE linking. Passing SHLIB_CFLAGS="-shared"
    causes /usr/bin/expect to become a shared library that SEGFAULTs upon
    execution. Instead use SHLIB_LD to pass -shared only to shared library
* Wed Apr 21 2021 Matthias Gerstner <>
  - pass explicit -pie flag to CFLAGS and hack `make` invocation so that
    /usr/bin/expect actually becomes a PIE binary. This is especially awkard
    since the expect build system implicitly passes -fPIC which breaks our
    gcc-PIE package, but does not pass -pie while linking the executable.
    Shared libraries are also not linked with -shared so we need to explicitly
    pass this, too, to avoid build breakage (bsc#1184122).
* Thu Oct 15 2020 Reinhard Max <>
  - Add an unversioned symlink to make linking easier for
    applications that use libexpect without Tcl (boo#1172681).
* Thu Oct 25 2018 Reinhard Max <>
  - New version 5.45.4:
    * Fix two bugs in EOF handling.
* Wed Nov 08 2017
  - New version 5.45.3:
    * expect.c: On finding a full buffer during matching the sliding
      window mechanism slides too far, truncating the whole buffer and
      preventing matches across the boundary. Fix is shortening the
      slide distance (slide only one 1/3).
    * expect.c: Replaced a cc==0 check with proper Tcl_Eof() check.
  - Includes changes from 5.45.2:
    * configure: Extended Tcl header detection for OS X Mountain Lion.
    * expect.c: Replaced memcpy with memmove to properly handle
      overlapping memory.
  - Includes changes from 5.45.1:
    * exp_chan.c: Fix a problem when talking a tty where the writer
      dies. Some operating systems report the condition as EIO with
      nothing read, while this actually an EOF. Previously, returned
      data was incomplete due to the error causing data in buffers to
      be dropped.
    * exp_chan.c: Fix a problem with the iteration over the expect
      channel list where the loop code may modify the list, breaking
      the iterator.
    * Fixes for exp_chan.c and exp_command.h
    * expect.c: Convert #bytes information to #chars to prevent later
      code to fail when copying strings around and miscalculating how
      much to copy, for strings containing non-ASCII utf chars.
    * exp_inter.c: Hack access to TCL_REG_BOSONLY when not present,
      became private with Tcl 8.5 and higher.
    * expect.h: Remove the local fiddling with the memory allocation
      and panic macros.
    * example/unbuffer: Prevent unbuffer from swallowing exit code of
      the command it ran (regular mode only, not -p)
    * Various deduplications and cleanups
  - cleanup with spec-cleaner
  - use %make_install macro
* Fri Jul 17 2015
  - Don't ship the 'weather' example anymore (fate#318342).
* Tue Mar 26 2013
  - Added url as source.
    Please see
* Wed Feb 06 2013
  - Update config.guess/sub for aarch64
* Sat Apr 14 2012
  - Remove execute permission from logfiles
