Is it really so simple to start an external script and fill the TN5250

Then the user can confirm the screen entries (or the script will fill
the OK field).

It sounds like you want something like the EHLLAPI which is especially common with 3270 emulators. Unfortunately, I don't think tn5250 has anything like this at the moment.

You might be able to do something with the scripting features of x3270 for now:
