    Can java read contents of another window? And send keystrokes to it?
    I will be dabbling in computer vision and ai and I want to teach java to
    play games such as pacman.

    Not in a "pure java" way unless the 'pacman' is running in the same VM
    or you can modify it. If you can sacrifice platform independance you
    could drop into a native library via JNI and use native os mechanics
    to grab the contents of an arbitrary window.
