Pexpect is a pure Python Expect. It allows easy control of other applications.

Project description


Development of Pexpect-U has stopped. The changes which motivated it - Python 3 support and unicode awareness, are now in Pexpect, although the API is a bit different. Please use Pexpect instead of this fork.

Pexpect-U is a fork of Pexpect, a pure-Python module to control interactive programs running in a virtual terminal.

Pexpect-U is unicode-aware, and compatible with Python 3 (using distribute to run 2to3 during setup). It requires Python 2.6 or above.
