 Checking Things With expect

Gerry Patterson tells us how to check connectivity using expect.

"I had a requirement for a simple script that checks connectivity. If the connection was not up, I wanted that script to telnet to my Dynalink RTA020 modem/router and reset it. I tried out "expect" and was pleasantly surprised to find a neat package that was easy to install and use."
