Key press simulation in FC


Hello,
i did a search on this forums/google but did not find a clear explanartion yet.

How would i go about simulating complex key combination being pressed in Linux Fedora(lets say ALT-TAB) or Alt TAB followed by release of TAB while ALT is still pressed down.

(I need to my voice software to display and keep up a task switch window) and this is the best way to go i believe.

Would i have to go into assembly for this or is there a way to do this in C or even via a shell script?


If you are not sure even pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

I believe you can do this using the X API or, for a terminal, in curses.

For example with XSendEvent or XTestFakeKeyEvent.
