looking for an example for invoking keystrokes programmatically

Hello,

I have a simple need but do not have the knowledge to accomplish. I have a need for a program to be called (command line) and passed a parameter (i have this part).  The program then needs to save the string that was sent to it to the windows clipboard and then invoke a keystroke (Shift+F3).  The clipboard and keystroke are the piece i need some direction on.  

Thanks!
