How do Poker Odds Calculators read cards, bets and player actions?

I am considering writing a real time poker odds calculator. I’ve got everything figured out, except for how to read the table action. I don’t believe they’re reading the pixels directly. I suspect they’re intercepting the text in the status box, but I’m not sure…

What mechanism are real time Poker Odds Calculators uisng to read cards, bets and player actions? Can you direct me to samples/examples of source code?

  1. I am a developer and IMHO all actions are going in and out of your PC (when you run the client). So it’s a simple matter of parsing the XML files that are stored locally on you pc. I had a look a while ago out of interest and they are publicly available.
