I have done rather complicated stuff with expect from tcl for systems as
well as automating project testing. It is very good to use pre-existing
tools like those you have at your uni, but learning how to use expect is
a power tool to add to your toolbelt. (not as powerful as your shell,
editor, sed, awk, perl, or many others, but still very useful.)

Perl also has its own expect too.
