    Can I use Python to automate an arbitrary program's execution? For
    example, if I have an application like Firefox, could I use Python to
    say "Move mouse to position x, click right mouse button here, etc.."?
    What is involved in this process? Thanks,
    Scott

    see http://users.swing.be/wintclsend/windpysend/index.html, though it's
    shareware.
