Arg, I had a really long message, but it hasn't been sent.

Ok i'll explain short now:

I want my script to ask some questions, write the answers to some 
config files for an external program, start this immediately by 
sending an ENTER input to the application.
And after this the program should wait for a (socket?)request from a 
server, and then exit.

Any idea how i can do this:)?

Thanks in advance,


P.S. Thanks for the Tkinter answer. is there a reference to all 
tkinter functions? (sorry, how can i change the title of the window?)
