How can I make a switch the active window (focused window) using Perl?



My end goal is to have a program that rotates through all the active programs on windows. In short the equivalent of pressing Alt + Shift + Tab every X minutes.



Any Help/direction would be appreciated.



Thank you

Andre

if you are using Tk then look through the Tk modules or the Tk documentation. If you are not using TK then look through the Win32 class of modules. I don't know how to do what you are asking so thats all I can suggest, hopefully someone else will have a suggestion.

Thank you very much your suggestion helped me. I have the script working.

I am now trying to find out how I can make this script run as a screen saver. Any help in this area would be appreciated. Thank you
