You can do that in Pd also, keyboard and mouse sequences all generate  
Pd messages which you can capture using [tot].  You could send it to  
a pd process to reproduce.  If my website was working you could see  
more on that here:

[clipboard] sounds nice.

Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war  
on terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
