 expects send limitation for 256 chars?

I read in the expect book about the 256 char limitation on terminal drivers in
cooked mode (page 274).

Given that we want to drive with expect (dejagnu) another programm that
has the tcl interpreter built-in and accepts tcl commands from the command-line,
what is the best way to avoid that limitation?

As I understand it, raw mode is not a solution since the usual tcl-interpreter
uses line-mode to read the caracters from the terminal driver.

Ist the only solution to avoid pty's alltogether. We definitely have to use
information-chunks of more than 256 chars within one send command.

Thanks for any hints.
