Chat In and Chat Out Scripts

The properties file and command line options use short scripts to control the logging in and out of the target system.

These scripts form a single line in the expect-send format (for chat in scripts) or send-expect format (for chat out scripts). The format is:
ChatinString : <expect> <send> <expect> <send> ...
ChatoutString : <send> <expect> <send> <expect> 
Note: The elements in the chat strings are separated by white space. In order to send or expect a sequence that includes white space, surround the sequence with single quotes.

A typical chat in script might be:


The expect text can use any regular expression, while the send text can send any characters (including control characters) using the standard UNIX/C escape sequences described in Escape Codes.
