    Expect, a TCL derivative, was created for this type of interactive
    communication. Install Expect and run the following:

     #!/usr/bin/expect -d
    spawn /usr/bin/ssh 192.168.0.1
    expect "root@192.168.0.1's password:"
    send "password....\r"
    expect "root@"
    send "ls"

    Maybe create a script wrapper for ssh that prompts for a user and host name?
