I studied C this year in college and I learned a fair amount of things, that go from basics (I/O, conditional structures...) to some more advanced topics (like graphs, neural networks...). Now I've decided that I should use my knowledge to program something useful for me... that's where the questions began.
I don't have any clue on how to accomplish this kind of things:
- Make my program connect to a website, fill up a text field and press a button or some other thing (more generically, I would like my program to "navegate" on the internet without any human-help whatsoever)
- Open up files in my computer using the appropriate software (for example: when I click in my program's button it opens a .jpg in paint, or a .psd in photoshop, etc...)
- Interact with other programs running at the same time (I don't want to actually change other program's memory addresses or stuff like that, I'm thinking about something more high-level, like pressing up a button or filling up a form...)
If you know how to do these things, or know a book about them, or you have any knowledge that would help me in learning this topics please post. =]
(At the moment I don't have a clue on how to learn these things)
