  • This is not really a beginner task, it is somewhat tricky.

    First, that program isn't for Windows... maybe it will work on some ancient DOS computer.

    In Windows, you would like the Windows API function keybd_event() or some such. Needless to say, you need a Windows compiler to write Windows programs, so toss out Turbo C if you are using that one...

    Info regarding keybd_event() can be found in the Win API documentation:
