Need Help With Windows Shell Programming

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to do something like output a word every x seconds of time. Also, is it possible while in a for loop and running a program with a lot of input, how would I automatically input a word when it requests for a user to type something in. Thanks.

    [blue]Yes it is possible either with a timer like WM_TIMER or with multi-threading + the Sleep() function.[/blue]

    [blue]I don't understand what you mean. Do you want to take the input from somewhere else instead of the user (for example from a file)?
    Or do you want something that types instead of the user, like somekind of macro?

    I think the macro is sort of like it. I want to know how to automate the input based on results of the console. Let say you have program a that runs and outputs 'a'. I need some sort of script that checks to see the last input, which is a, and input(simulate by feeding from any source) b if it is a, or a if it is not. Thanks for replying.
