it seems that simulating the mouse is a bad idea (focus problems).
how would I go to simulate CTRL-A ??

this does not work:

proc ctrl_all {} {
     set key "Control_L"
     set a 97

     pdsend "$mytoplevel key 1 $key 0"
     pdsend "$mytoplevel key 1 $a 0"
     pdsend "$mytoplevel key 0 $a 0"
     pdsend "$mytoplevel key 0 $key 0"
