Hi all,

Sometimes I feel guilty asking questions in this forum, as I'm of the mindset that "If I can't find it on my own, something's wrong" - but I'm not finding it, so here goes.

I'm being asked to do some 'Quality Assurance' on some applications, and it's pretty routine stuff for each test - so I'd like to try and write a script to make my life easier.

I'd like to write a script (preferably with some sort of GUI - TK is okay, or Win32::GUI as I'm stuck to Win systems for this) that will do some key capture, as well as take of the I/O of some of the different windows (for example, simulate the click of a mouse button in a certain form).

I've heard the term 'gremlin' used before for something like this - that essentially sends random clicks and keystrokes to a GUI app - I'm not necessarily wanting to just hammer away at this, but having it take care of my mundane processes would be great. :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
