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


       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:

              Converts an image file from PAT to PPM format.

              Extract a part of a PNG image file.

              Converts an image file from PNG to PAT format.

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

              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 programs.
