KeyQuencer is a very useful control panel that lets you perform complex tasks with one keystroke. I wrote it because I wasn't satisfied with the commercial macro engines currently available, as they require lots and lots of memory and often fill it with less than useful stuff. KeyQuencer uses a scripting approach; it can't watch your steps to learn new sequences as other commercial packages do. This requires a bit more work when you define a new sequence, but the final impact of KeyQuencer on your system is a lot smaller in terms of memory usage and processor time.
KeyQuencer works with special structures called macros, which are defined by a name, a key combination and a text. The macro name only appears in the control panel; it allows you to pick the right macro for editing or deletion and to have an easily readable list of all your macros (you can also copy the list to a text editor and print it). The macro key is the key combination you use to activate the macro: when KeyQuencer detects a macro key, it starts executing the macro without stopping the applications you're using. The actual task performed by the macro is defined by the macro text, which is a sequence of simple instructions. KeyQuencer has no built-in instructions; all the instructions are kept in separate external files called extensions. This allows you to leave unused extensions out of your Mac's memory and to add more extensions as they become available.

This is a control panel. To install it, drag and drop it onto the System Folder and accept when it asks you to place it in the Control Panels then reboot.
Emulating this? It should run fine under: Basilisk II
