To be more specific, AutoHotKey
(AHK) is a utility that allows you to create keystroke and mouse "macros" to perform a series of operations with a simple keystroke or other trigger. It has evolved into a complete interface control scripting language, and is quite powerful. It has nothing itself to do with poker, it's just a general tool that has been leveraged heavily in the online poker community to automate a lot of tasks that typically take a lot of manual keying or clicking. It's especially popular with multi-tablers. Some common uses for it is to automatically layout and manipulate your tables onscreen, automatically input your favorite bet amounts, etc.
