Autonomously sending MAVProxy (not MAVLink) commands

Hi there,

I have a project where I am required to implement my own ground station which relays commands through MAVProxy to a MAV. I’d like to have this ground station convey instructions to the MAV through MAVProxy protocol (e.g. takeoff, land, etc.) as opposed to creating my own MAVLink packets.

It is easy for a user to enter commands into MavProxy with their keyboard, and I’m hoping to automate this process through emulating user input into MAVProxy. I have tried various Bash shells to achieve this, but they seem to be unable to tap into the MAVProxy command-line interface. I was wondering if the MAVProxy library provides alternate methods to relay MAVProxy commands as opposed to user input? Perhaps through UDP/TCP protocol?
