Virtual User

To help those who someday want to do something like this, I decided to start this page, since I could not find a category on the Wiki about this.

This page is for notes, comments and links related to the topic of "Virtual User" in Tcl/Tk. Possibly another name for this topic is "Ghost User". Yet another name might be "Automating Testing of Graphical Applications".

A "Virtual User" is using Tcl/Tk to automate a repetitive task such as launching a program, typing the the same keystrokes or mouse clicks on certain areas of the screens. Think of the "Virtual User" as you who is not sitting at the computer getting something done in a GUI environment such as MS Windows.

I have added these links below to put one one page information that relates to "automating" a boring or repetitive task.
