bl460c G* Firmware Update

Hi All,
A question for the Guru's.

I'm looking for a method to run a BIOS FW update on a very large amount of blades using "for" loop combined in SSH using Bash or Perl ,the thing is that the FW updates are interactive, and when the update is done they require choosing Y or N for reboot, I don't want to reboot all these servers for now (I'm aware of the fact reboot is needed), can anyone help me with a script using auto-login and sending N as an answer ,perhaps using a tool such as "expect" ?
Any help will be HIGHLY appreciated.

Hi!
expect is great, but look on the autoexpect, it makes scripting little easier, you just going to need a little result-script optimization.

Hi, 10x for the reply but can you please refer me to some guide that explain auto-expect or give me some example? :)
