I'm looking for a way to have a program open a web site, then automaticly
click on a button. Then wait X seconds or minutes and do it again.

Can someone point me to some type of sample code that would do this?



That sounds like a high-level task which is easiest (and best) achieved
with one of the "mechanize" implementations, like (Perl) or (Python)
Use whatever language amuses you. There are probably other
implementations in further languages.

I have used the Python module to write an ebay bidding agent in 20
lines, works nicely.
