Possibly, but not probably. AutoIt3 has been on my plate to try for a
while, but I just recently got around to actually use it -- with a push by
the absence of a command line interface in the new Ghost. (Who's
interested: http://tinyurl.com/bl8s6)


For using MPLAB's programmer I had used PowerPro scripts so far -- but
that's only useful if you use PowerPro anyway. AutoIt3 is much better for
this type of task, and much easier to get started too. I'll probably write
something like a command line driver for MPLAB over the next weeks.

Maybe use WinActivate("MPLAB IDE *") -- you don't need to touch your script
just because you update MPLAB (if nothing relevant in the menus and
shortcuts has changed).

Is there something in the window texts that comes up or goes away when the
debugger stops? (I don't use the debugger...)
