I recently used the PerlClip tool
I was wondering on how I have been able to survive for so long without such a fantastic utility. Thank you James Bach and Danny Faught.
1. I noticed that the source code was released with the utility. I was wondering if someone has been able to enhance the utility? If, would you be able to share the code? (if not the code, would you be able to describe the enhancement)
2. I wanted to enquire if there are any other tools which might be similiar in nature?
3. Did someone find any limitations with this tool? or found scenarios in which this tool was not able to perform the way you expected it to?
NOTE - I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question/discussion. Moderator - Please move to correct forum, if this is the incorrect forum
You can also take a look at Om which I have made.It is produces strings of diff. length more easily than Perl Clip. Like PerlClip it is written in Perl too. It is written from scratch . Om is also open source.
u can get that from
Let me know if you want some additional features in Om. So that I can incorporate it in the next version.
Hi folks...welcome to the 21st century. Let me introduce you to something called Unicode, which is widely used throughout software, including the internet.
Tools that generate ASCII characters may expose bugs, but really...if your developer can't parse ASCII I would suggest looking for a new job unless you get paid by the bug (because there will be lots of them).
If you are really looking for testing with a modern tool that will generate random strings across the Unicode spectrum including surrogate pair characters I will put in a shameless plug for Babel (http://www.testingmentor.com/tools/t...ages/babel.htm). Version 2.0 will be complete by Feb 15 to reflect the current Unicode 5.1 standard as well as include some new functionality.
