Having fun on April 1st with SSH
Authored by: persson on Mar 31, '03 11:45:33AM

Of course I meant to say, "the Mac OS has had these capabilities for years".

Somehow Applescript seems so much more powerful than xmesg. I am sure that an expert with gnome or kde (or a Tk guru using wish) could accomplish many of the same tricks under X, but clearly that is no where near as easy to do and requires that the 'victim' have the appropriate windowing environment in place.

It does make me realize that I need to look around and see if the venerable xroaches has been cloned for OSX though!
