Do you have Script examples ON UNIX SCRIPT using TELNET?

I do not have expert yet,  but I need to write a UNIX KSH script to telnet to a TEXT Based system,  and then enter a few commands to get to the right MENU and then save all of the screen return to a file so that I can verify the result later.

This is all in BACKGROUND JOB,  I will not run the TELNET Interactively!!!!

Please HELP;-)

Note also the comment about the "script" command, to capture output to a file; Though there are other ways, e.g. ">" for output redirection to capture the info you wanr.
