Currently I have to run a telnet session to execute a given program A... I have to key in various fields on the terminal emulator Press enter and the emulator displays the results. I then print the results. I then go to another program B (terminal emulation) and key in information from the print out.
I have NO ability to update program A or Program b . What I want to do is collect the data output from Program A to my PC and then feed the results to ProgramB as if I have keyed in the results.
I thought about using a sniffer program to figure out the key strokes but I am not sure how I should go about sending the data to the program A and Program B (the terminal emulator programs) Should I use telnet or could you offer any suggests.
The pc is Windows and the Program A and Program B reside on the mainframe. Please try to point me in the right direction.
