  Description     : device interaction suite

This software provides object oriented API for dealings with devices
such as routers and switches.  Additionally, these classes extend and
abstract the perl Expect module, and many of Expect's functions are
wrapped, or made otherwise available.

A design goal of DIS was to implement the ability for a user to
interactively login to a router with or without knowledge of the
Transport or Authentication mechanisms, or execute specific or script
actions, with our without logic both serially and parallel.

In support of this design goal, wraps around the Transport,
Authentication, and Connection classes to provide a simplified API to
the end-user.  This API is intended to be utilized by the 'dis' script,
and other scripts which have a common need for similar command-line
argument processing and options.
