pexpect module for Package Control

This is the pexpect module bundled for usage with Package Control, a package manager for the Sublime Text text editor.

How to use pexpect as a dependency

In order to tell Package Control that you are using the pexpect module in your ST package, create a dependencies.json file in your package root with the following contents:

   "*": {
      ">3000": [

If the file exists already, add "pexpect" to the every dependency list.

Then run the Package Control: Satisfy Dependencies command to make Package Control install the module for you locally (if you don't have it already).

After all this you can use import pexpect in any of your Python plugins.
