How can one enter char strings into HTML forms in Netscape from a C++program. I would like to write a program to automatically fill forms at websites. I have seen some programs that automatically enter your username and password into forms at websites.

1) You can write a global windows hook.  See the SetWindowsHookEx() API.  Also you can see a code example (taken from production code) at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q.10063288.

2) You can send keystrokes to an application using the keybd_event() API.

2) Netscape supports DDE.  See http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/communicator/DDE/index.htm.
