While perl can do this, I use expect scripts to perform various tasks. These scripts allow for automating various tasks based on received information and so forth.

For instance, portion of a script that logs into a Cisco edge device and checks connectivity to it's gateway...

    /usr/bin/expect <<EOF > /dev/null
    set timeout 10

    spawn ssh -q -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no $id@$ipaddr

    # First time, expect prompt for adding to known_hosts.
    expect {
        "Are you sure you want to continue connecting *" {
        send "yes\n"
        expect "*assword: "
        send "$pass\n"
        }
        "*assword: " {
        send "$pass\n"
        }
    }

    expect "*>"
    send "en\r"
    expect "*assword: "
    send "$enpass\r"

    expect "*#"
    log_file /tmp/remote_ping-$checkip.txt
    send "ping $checkip\n"

    expect "*#"
    send "exit\n"

EOF

This can then be used within a bash or other script.

Google "expect examples for cisco devices" and you will find a great deal of information.
