OzzyOsbourne has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Long, long ago, I figured out a way to control winamp via an X-10 remote control (Old Post). Recently, I have been contemplating using pieces of this code to control Yahoo's Launchcast, so I don't have to sit in front of the PC to listen. I'd like to rate, skip, play, pause, etc. by sending commands to the Launchcast window.

As the X-10 code *should be* reusable, the only issue, my dear monks, is that I am at a complete loss when it comes to sending commands to the Activex controls in the Launchcast window. Can you suggest anything that may kick this project into gear?

Thanks in advance.
