Discover process automation for Unix and Linux systems with Bash and Expect shell scripts. See how to create Expect scripts to automate inputs to another command or script; prompt for user input with the interact command; employ autoexpect; automate FTP and SCP sessions to transfer files; and use rsync and SSH for secure local and remote backups of files and directories. Use the Korn shell and the C shell and compare them to Bash.
