Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and
distribute user actions under the X11 environment.
Think of it as a robot that can imitate the job you just
did. Xnee can be used to:
||e.g nightly automatic regression tests
||e.g record and replay a user interaction with your system
||e.g teacher's actions can be sent to all student's desktops
|Record and replay 'macro'
||e.g Tie a key modifier combination (e.g using xrebind) to
replay a recorded session. The macro is WM- and program independent.
|Retype a file
||e.g When testing an editor, Xnee can type in the content of a file. This can
be compared with the original.
