in reply to perl library for controlling Windows GUI (like AutoIt)

Most of the time you need not manipulate the application by automating mouse clicks. Script the usage of keyboard shortcuts for any functionality you like, use TAB to navigate to buttons, and ENTER respectivelly to activate them. This can be done by exploiting the Windows Scripting Host.
use strict; use Win32::OLE; my $wsh = new Win32::OLE 'WScript.Shell'; my $targetExactWindowName = "The exact window title of your applicatio +n"; # This brings it to the foreground $wsh->AppActivate( $target ); # Type some keys in the Window, here Ctr+P followed by Enter $wsh->SendKeys('^(p)'); $wsh->SendKeys('{ENTER}');
You can read more about sendkeys'() peculiarities here: Microsoft link. Of course, you should check if the relevent applicantion exposes some functionality via an OLE server. In that is the case, see if you can get hold of its "Scripting Guide".

[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
