I need to make a small application (fast). I just need to have the b key to be pressed for 10 minutes at 0.1 seconds intervals. Do you know how can I begin? I have just downloaded xcode 3.1.4 and used to use basic, turbo pascal and bit of c++ quite some time ago.
I also tried Automator. I recorded the b stroke and put a loop on, but it does it once and then it blocks on the watch me do. If I tick the ask to continue it loops for as long I asked for.
Thank you in advance!!

Your best bet is AppleScript:
-- Give yourself 5 seconds to switch to the right app delay 5 set finishedTime to (current date) + (10 * minutes) tell application "System Events" repeat while (current date) < finishedTime keystroke "b" delay 0.1 end repeat end tell

Take a look at CGEventCreateKeyboardEvent and CGEventPost. This will allow you to post raw keyboard events to simulate keystrokes.
