Shorthand or Autocomplete For Linux


Are there any programs out there that can complete this feature for me... Basically I want something that will allow me to begin typing something and it will Autoreplace it with whatever I want in just about any dialog box... Or java app typing box... So I could type /bowling and it would Replace that with an ASCII text of a Bowling wall... Kind of like ShortKeys or Shorthand For Windows from 2002... Any help would be great appreciated...

I see what you mean now, it had me confused. Found a solution?

If the program could access and run scripts (ie command line) then you could simply copy that into said script and prefix each line with

echo "

...and not forget the trailling quote at end of each line.
