For a specific debugging routine I need a stand-alone script that will simulate a continuously clicking mouse.  I assume that it will link some type of onmousedown and onmouseup action in a continuous loop.  Most of my programming involves webpages and I any background in stand-alone scripts.  I'd appreciate any suggestions on where to start.

you can actually forget the link name.

<html>
<body onload="setInterval('document.links[0].click();',1000);">
<a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank">Google</a>
</body>
</html>


this is going to simulate the Google link being clicked every 1000 miliseconds

that's a start.  please feel free to post if you need more help.

Thanks for the solution, but I need to simulate a mouseclick.  Like clicking an "Okay" button repeatedly.
