./devel/py-pexpect, Pure Python Expect-like module

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.2.1, Package name: py27-pexpect-4.2.1, Maintainer: minskim

Pexpect makes Python a better glue for controlling child applications.

Pexpect is a pure Python module for spawning child applications;
controlling them; and responding to expected patterns in their
output. Pexpect works like Don Libes' Expect. Pexpect allows your
script to spawn a child application and control it as if a human were
typing commands.

Pexpect can be used for automating interactive applications such as
ssh, ftp, passwd, telnet, etc. It can be used to a automate setup
scripts for duplicating software package installations on different
servers. It can be used for automated software testing. Pexpect is
in the spirit of Don Libes' Expect, but Pexpect is pure Python. The
Pexpect interface was designed to be easy to use.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for devel category

Issues found with existing distfiles:
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Update to 3.0.

The new major version number doesn't indicate any deliberate API incompatibility.
We have endeavoured to avoid breaking existing APIs. However, pexpect is under
new maintenance after a long dormancy, so some caution is warranted.

* A new :ref:`unicode API <unicode>` was introduced.
* Python 3 is now supported, using a single codebase.
* Pexpect now requires at least Python 2.6 or 3.2.
* The modules other than pexpect, such as :mod:`pexpect.fdpexpect` and
  :mod:`pexpect.pxssh`, were moved into the pexpect package. For now, wrapper
  modules are installed to the old locations for backwards compatibility (e.g.
  ``import pxssh`` will still work), but these will be removed at some point in
  the future.
* Ignoring ``SIGHUP`` is now optional - thanks to Kimmo Parviainen-Jalanko for
  the patch.

Log message:
Update to 2.4.

Upstream changelog:

  Fix a bug regarding making the pty the controlling terminal when the
  process spawning it is not, actually, a terminal (such as from cron)

(3.0 is out, but this update is far more clearly safe.)
