I was looking at driving telnet, and came across putty and plink.  Putty 
has a good Wikipedia entry, but only says this about plink:

Plink: a command-line interface to the PuTTY back ends

a quick search through apt-cache shows:


which looks interesting.  While there are numerous telnet libraries, I'd 
rather use the system telnet. Thoughts or pointers?
