I remember I did something like this to extract the word list
from a Dutch dictionary program:
WINEDEBUG="trace+text" wine <app.exe> 2>&1
Because my program can't display all words at once and
because I didn't want to click the mouse button a hundred
thousand times I wrote a little program to do it.
I used xwininfo and xev to find the window id and
coordinates of the down arrow on the scroll bar for the
word list. The program would then send X button press
and release events to this window in a loop.
