[CentOS] Terminal emulation scripting

Okay, here are some things I found out.

1)	Linux telnet is sending a 0x0a for the enter key
2)	Windows putty program is sending a 0x0d for the enter key
3)	Windows telnet is sending a 0x0d0a for the enter key
4)	The device (don't ask) I'm working with doesn't like the Linux

I've tried coding the expect with 0x0d:

expect ">"
send "m2"
send "\x0d"

But, this doesn't seem to work.

I'm starting to run out of ideas.

Check out expect. I had to do this with some data radios as of late, and

it worked out pretty well.
