 I am looking for a tool that permit to send key to an graphical
application 'with selection of the windows in which the key is send). I
wonder if a UNIX command do that or if it is necessary to use an
commercial tool.

 So, could you help me about this subject .... ;-)

 Thank you very much for you answer.
