I have following somewhat mad situation:
I have legacy proprietary software suite that behaves in following way:
there is X11/Motif graphical launchpad on which several icons are located, upon pressing an icon some GUI-based
application is started, there is no other way to start the application but through the launchpad, framework checks for it and
if application is started differently it is forcibly closed because it is considered license violation.
The application that I am interested in collects and represents the statistics from several (potentially
many dozens) of sources and represents them in various ways (bar graph, run chart, counters) -- now here comes the hook:
it is about the only way to get the data in this application in near-real time, the only exception being the fact that this graphical
application can save text files using Save/Save As grpahical menue entries and these text files can be then processed in whatever
way I want and I pretty much want to do exactly this: parse/process these text files.
Now, my idea is to script the interaction with this graphical programm, so that script automatically selects Save or
Save As every minute and then provides the file name that includes current time and any other parts of the file name I might wish.
Questions: To write such a script with xdotool -- is it something reasonably easy doable? Are examples available that shows how
something similar might look like?
