This is just a short program for building test files. The files contain random characters, and are useful for testing things such as transfer speeds, compression ratios, attachment size limits in email, and other things that can use files of varying sizes.

For new coders, this small, one-form program demonstrates:

  • Serial output to a file
  • Randomization
  • Limiting textbox input to specific characters
  • Working with drive and directory selectors
  • Simple use of a MsgBox for trapped errors
