Sending a String from php script to separate app

I have a very simple mysql/php script that is being used to store
program keys in a db for multiple users. I would like to add the
ability to send these string values to another application. In doing
some research it looks like the VB function SendKeys is what I would
like to be able to do using PHP. Simply copy and pasting these values
will not work, because the string is 20 + characters long, and the
applications where these strings are being pasted into break these
strings into 4 or more separate entry blanks. Therefore, only pasting
the first 5-6 characters.

In order for this to work correctly, I need to somehow make the
application think the string to be copied is being typed in, or if
there is some way to emulate tab spacing in the copied string.

Any ideas?

Sorry, you can't emulate keyboard input in PHP. And if the copied string had
tabs, they would be handled as tab characters within the window, not as commands
to switch to another window.

If this is on Windows, you may be able to do it with an ActiveX control. But
there's no way to do it natively in PHP.

Hi forum, i'm a little new in javascript and maybe you can help me.

Hi, I am trying to construct a WSE 2.0 security SOAP request in VBScript on an HTML page to send off to a webservice. I think I've almost got it but I'm having an issue generating the nonce value for the UserName token. Is it possilbe at all to do this from VBScript (or jscript?)? I know I will be limited with what I can do with the SOAP message. Eg/ can't sign/encrypt it etc. Thanks,

I have a pair of programs which trade python data back and forth by pickling up lists of objects on one side (using pickle.HIGHEST_PROTOCOL), and sending that data over a TCP socket connection to the receiver, who unpickles the data and uses it.
