Tool/Language for serial communication

What would be the best tool/Language on linux be for automatically dialing a remote system then logging on to that remote system (using serial communication) . The tool/Langauge would have to recognize the log on prompts then be able to work its way through menus on the remote system. Then I need to transfer and/or Retrieve a file using protocols like Z/Y/X Modem and Kermit. I use a product called Mlink on the SCO Unix platform to do this. I am hoping to find a freeware solution to this problem. I have the code to do the Z/Y/X Modem transfer ... I am looking for the best Tool/Language to do the rest.

     Thank You  Doug.

I want to tool/Language to create scripts to log on to other computer systems ... I believe mgetty is for setting up an Environment so that some else can log on to my computer.

I have read the documentation and it looks like it should work.

Just use the normal pppd, and the you can use any good serial communication software like kermit, seyon, etc, they all accetpt script programming. You will need to set ppp both as a server and
client, to be able to handle dial-ins and outs

Dougc,

Better yet, try using "autoexpect".  It comes with expect release 5.24 and better, which can be obtained from http://expect.nist.gov.  Basically it watches the console for keystrokes based on an interactive session between you and the remote machine and generates an expect script based on your conversation with the remote machine.  You can then edit the expect script to handle variations on the theme.
