Event taps are Core Graphics objects that you install in the system to
monitor and respond to user input to any application from a keyboard, mouse,
scroll wheel or tablet pointer. Using Event Taps Testbench, configure and
install as many event taps as you like, and monitor the user input events
that trigger them in real time. In addition, configure how the event taps
respond to user input, both by performing the example actions provided and
by modifying user input before the events are posted to their targets.
