Quirky issue

Discussion in 'C Programming' started by Jerry Gaspard, Aug 13, 2005.

  1. Anyone know of a way to write to the input buffer of another running
    application?

    Lets say I application A running and application B.
    Application B's only purpose is to send certain commands(via keystrokes)
    to application A.

    Such as Control+s every 30 seconds.

    Any help would be appriciated.

    You can't.

    It may be possible, on some platforms, using some extremely platform-
    specific tricks. On other platforms, it may not be possible at all.

    You'll need to ask a group specific to your platform.
