How is the legacy interface called of some programs that you run them using TAB, F1, F2 etc keys to navigate to different fields and type text? The whole interface is MS-DOS-like text only with text inputs and no graphics.
How are these programs called?
Also, how do they work? Do they write/read from a file? How is the data stored?
How can we automate them and can we inject data into them by-passing their tedious interface?
