This is the test piece for the algo "sendstring" and it appears to be working correctly. It uses the API "VkKeyScan()" which maps the current computer's characters to virtual keys and I am hoping that it does the same in a consistent manner across different language versions and keyboards. The example starts Notepad then sends 4 lines of text to it. It should look like this and go into Notepad at about fast teletype speed. I found that it requires time delays as a keyboard is slow and you can outrun it if you send a character too fast to it.
