    send keystrokes


    i am currently working on application that would be an touchpannel applet for aplication. I want it to send keystrokes to another process (this process is console program). I've searched the forums but found only windows sendkey On unix i also found expec tool but after a few days fihgting with it i couldn't manage it to send a keystroke to process started before i start expect (i tried setting SPAWN_ID variable with no effect). Anyone have idea how to solve a problem ?

    thanx for link, althought its a quiet interesting tool it can't send keystrokes to applications in x windows, i wrote before that app which i want to send keystroke to is console application but i want to run it in xwindow in terminal. And i don't know how to send a keystroke with it to non-active console, when it sends keys it also do it to the active terminal, and this make no good to me becouse i want to send a keystroke from one app while being in another

    edited: by now i discovered how it cant send keys in x window, sorry for makeing confusion but the issue with sending to non active windows still unresolved
