I'm trying to build EXPECT 4.7 under Linux (SLS 1.02 release). So far
TCL 6.7 and TK 3.2 have compiled and passed their tests. EXPECT compiles
fine, but when I try to run the EXPECT examples (e.g. kibitz), it hangs for a
while and then finally prints:
too many programs spawned? - out of ptys
and leaves a whole bunch of /tmp/ptylock.XX files around.
I know I'm not out of pty's (I can start up more x-terms no problem), and
don't understand why EXPECT is failing. Can anyone help?
