How to send keyboard stroke to another program

Hi,
on HPUX10.2 system, I have been looking for a program (or some kind of keyboard macro) that can help to automate data entry of a GUI window which accepting keyboard entry.
The data entry would need to be read from a predefined text file.

However, after spending a day I still can't find such a program. I am not sure such program exist on HPUX but I have been using one on the Window XP.

Thanks

Whose GUI window? On what?

The GUI window is just a x window with a few textboxes for user to key in data in each field.

I basically want the text boxes to fill with some initial data. The initial should be read from a text file for each field.

thanks for the reply thus far.
