    More information is required. If I understand correctly, you've got a program X running and you want to write another program Y that would be able to get characters from the X program window. Is that right? Do you want to get a character from a console window or from a GUI?

    Is it a console window or a graphical one (GUI)? If it's a graphical window, I really cannot imagine how to do it, or at least I can only see very difficult solutions (like OCR). If it's a console window, perhaps it's possible to get the screen buffer address and then get the character and its attributes.
