Google didn't help you find an expect tutorial ?
Are you sure you spelled google correctly?
The best source of information on Expect is the book Exploring Expect by
Don Libes published by O'Reilly. It contains an excellent tutorial on
Expect and it's underlying language Tcl
Here is a telnet example that returns the number of emails in your pop
eval spawn telnet -l myname pop.my_ISP.com 110
send "user myname\r"
send "pass secret\r"
expect "+OK "
expect -re "\[0-9]* "
set answer $expect_out(0,string)
send_user "$answer \r\n"
expect -re "\[0-9]*\r\n"
expect "signing off"

"The only system which is truly secure, is one which is switched off
and unplugged, locked in a titanium lined safe, buried in a concrete
bunker, surrounded by nerve gas and very highly paid armed guards. Even
then, I wouldn't stake my life on it" - Gene Spafford

Jargon file, abrgd.: The September that never ended. On the Internet,
every September's freshmen influx got their first accounts and, not
knowing how to post/email, always made a nuisance of themselves. Usually
they were trained in a few months. But in September 1993, AOL users
became able to post, overwhelming the capacity to acculturate them; to
those who recall the period before, this triggered a decline in the
quality of online communications. Syn. eternal September.
