scripting "interactive" input

Doh! My last mail suggested Curses, but I meant Expect (which can be used
to script Curses based apps, hence the confusion). Oops.

Give script a try too though, it's really nifty, and not as well known as
it probably deserves to be. If you're comfortable with Macs, it's a bit
like turning on "observe mode" for the AppleScript editor, or the
mechanism for recording macros in programs like Photoshop -- that is, it's
for high level, "you don't need to think, just act naturally" scripting.
