I had a small automation program , that would screen-scrape konsole
output and take actions accordingly 

To "read" the Konsole window , I used to use automated-mouseclicks and
the use dcop to read the klipper output. 

I have upgraded my desktop to FC12 
Now in kde4 I dont have dcop. How can I automate reading of the konsole
contentfrom within my perl script.

Whatever is currently on my Konsole screen .. I need that into a

I was hoping qdbus can support function like readSessionWindow(); that
returns the Visible text on the window, Is it possible
