( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The functionality you are looking for when sending is called SendKeys on Windows. I don't know about capturing output from GUI programs, but I would probably try to cut and paste it into the clipboard, and from there to a logfile opened in notepad or something like this.

For an extremely simple-minded approach to this, you might try this little sendkeys script (in VB Script) I wrote a while ago to automate little tasks in GUI apps, e.g., when working from a Makefile (hacking Visual Basic in Emacs is crap without the usual compile buffer ... ).

The syntax for special keys can be found on pages 213-214, table 7.2 of Windows Script Host. I added a directive {DELAY milliseconds}, where milliseconds is an integer number of milliseconds to sleep. This can be used to make the script wait for a certain time, which is vital when automating GUI programs on Win32 platforms.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
