172RE: [perlguitest] Automating Console Application
- Apr 4, 2003You might also try looking at the IPC::Open2 and IPC::Open3 modules. I haven't used them, but they seem to do something similar to what you want.Chris Hilton-----Original Message-----Hi All,

Subject: [perlguitest] Automating Console Application
I have an interactive console application that I am trying to
automate. I want to send key strokes to an application that I spawn
using the system call and at the same time capture what the program
dumps to stdout. I am working in windows XP and I cannot seem to get
it to work. I tried redirecting the output of my application to a
file but it doesn't seem to work because the output file output.txt
is always empty.
Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong and if there is a better
way to do this or provide me an example. I would appreciate any
assistance that anyone can offer.
Here is a example of what I am doing:
use Win32::GuiTest qw/SendKeys FindWindowLike GetWindowText/;
$Path = "C:/test";
system("start $Path/myexe.exe -i config.ini >> output.txt");
# Allow program time to start up
my @windows = FindWindowLike(0, "myexe.exe", "");
