Expect/Tkterm screen scraping?

Hi, we have a legacy vt100-compatible app that has ncurses-like menus.

other API available).  However, for error handling we'll also need
some way of screen scraping it (all errors on the screen would start
with "***", so theoretically some sort of pattern matching would

In my searching to date, I've come across Tkterm, and I do have a bit
of familiarity with Expect (used it for automating telnet and ftp
things in the past).  However, doing a search for "tkterm screen

Failing that, I'm open to any other suggestions on how to try this :)
