Hello (),

I've written a major mode ( for an
obscure programming language (APDL
which is used to automate finite element simulations.

At the moment the user is "copy and pasting" code snippets from an Emacs
buffer to the TCL/TK application's "command" text field.  The Emacs mode
would be more helpful if one could directly "send" code fragments with a
key binding to the application.

I've no experience with GUI programming and the only idea I've got from
internet investigations, so far, is to utilise an external C program for
sending the data over the X server with the help of libraries like Xlib
or XCB, but there seems to be little documentation.  Do you have a
better idea or is this the easiest way to go?

Best wishes
