Default Sending Keystrokes to Application

Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I have several Windows terminals that access a Unix server through an emulator. There are several applications that I would like to automate, but unfortuantely, the emulator program does not support macros to the degree I need. My initial thought is to write a program that can mimic the keystrokes of a user, however I am not exactly sure how to do this or if it will work. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Perhaps using an API to send messages. I don't know if it can be done, but perhaps you can broadcast the same messages that truly using the keyboard broadcasts. (Everything is done through messages in the windows environment!)

I don't know who is “in charge” while emulation is taking place, but if the emulator intercepts broadcast messages so as to respond to the keyboard, then maybe this is the route for you.
