X Automation Tools is a set of tools that can be used to control input to X Windows from the command line, using the XTest extension. It also has some basic graphic screen scraping tools to find buttons, text, etc. from an image like a screen grab. Together they allow scripts to find things on the screen and click or type input in order to automate tasks in X Windows.
