Re: [vox-tech] Macro Key and Mouse recorder for Linux



I've got wget to work with SSL, htaccess logins, and cookies before (at the 
same time.).  I used it for load generation and we thought there was an issue 
with number of hits on a particular page causing a problem.

Perhaps expect / expecttk would do what you want?  I dunno if expecttk can be 
used to automate other GUI tasks.  You'll probably have to do some scripting 
instead of "recording", your actions in the GUI.
