XAUTOMATION(7)	       Miscellaneous Information Manual		XAUTOMATION(7)

NAME
       xautomation  -  control X from the command line,	and find things	on the
       screen

DESCRIPTION
       xautomation is a	set of command lines programs  to  control  X  and  do
       "visual	scraping"  to find things on the screen. The control interface
       allows mouse movement, clicking,	button up/down,	key up/down, etc,  and
       uses  the  XTest	extension so you don't have the	annoying problems that
       xse has when apps ignore	sent events. The visgrep program  find	images
       inside of images	and reports the	coordinates, allowing programs to find
       buttons,	etc, on	the screen to click on.

       xautomation consists in the following programs:

       pat2ppm
	      Converts an image	file from PAT to PPM format.

       patextract
	      Extract a	part of	a PNG image file.

       png2pat
	      Converts an image	file from PNG to PAT format.

       rgb2pat
	      Converts an image	file from 24-bit RGB to	PAT format

       visgrep
	      Visual grep, greps for images in another image.

       xte    Generates	fake input using the XTest extension.

       For more	information, please see	the individual manpages	of these  pro-
       grams.
