in thread Test Case Generator

Hey,
Thanks for prompt reply! Well, right now I do not have access to the manually tested verified setup files. I will have to first make sure if every feature of the stand alone utility is working fine and matches to the expected outcome as desired by the developer.
I am working with same approach in mind as you said about verifying the output of each setup file. I am stuck with understanding of automated test case creation.
How this happens in commercially available testing tools?
How can I generate umpteen number of test cases for a feature available in the stand alone application?

    There is no fairy magic that you can sprinkle over a program to magically generate test cases. Creating test cases requires a human to write down the input parameters and the expected outcome.

[1nickt]: The best way is to scope it tightly so it just goes away when you are finished with it.
[perldigious]: but... but... perldigious is the unvirtuous kind of lazy in this case. :-)
[perldigious]: Just kidding. Thanks 1nickt, I'll go ahead and do it the right way. An extra set of brackets and a little extra indentation isn't too much to ask.
[karlgoethebier]: perldigious: perhaps a block if you are paranoid ;-)
[choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
[choroba]: iirc
[perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
