Has anybody hacked TN5250 to get it to link to a Dialer or the Expect

I saw the thread at
http://archive.midrange.com/linux5250/200210/msg00007.html but nothing in
the past four years.

My boss would love to predictively dial telephone numbers from a TN5250
screen then pop the entire application over the network to a waiting agent
once the phone was answered.

Personally I'd settle for a function key that grabbed a phone number
defined by a regexp on the screen and shoved that into our dialer's agent
webpage for one click dialing.

One odd thing is that the application we connect to marks date fields as
numeric only and the IBM emulator allows the users to type in slashes, but
tn5250 balks at this.
