Hi PerlMongers!

I'm trying to write some perl code to log into a system, launch a program,
then launch a program on the local system and connect it's stdout to the
remote systems stdin, etc.  I was thinking Expect.pm would be a good tool
for the job, but would like some advice on how to go about using it, or
advice on a better way of doing things if there is one.

An example sequence for tar would be this:

1)	Telnet to the remote system.
2)	Login to the remote system.
3)	Launch tar xvpf - on the remote system.
4)	Launch tar cf - ./ (or whatever) on the local system.
5)	Let tar happen.
6)	Close down the remote tar.
7)	Close down the local tar.
8)	Exit.

Comments?  Ideas?  Thanks in advance!
