The executables briefly described below does not provide direct support to the generation and/or operation on the Test Sets, but are predominantly used by DOS batch tools to perform secondary operations that it is impossible or - at least - very complex to do directly from DOS. These utilities may also be of some usefulness, even if they are not to be considered "tout cours" test tools. We document them briefly below for completeness, noting that simply launching the command without passing parameters, is printed (for the most significant ones) a help on how to use the command.
- contrLimWise.exe: performs the control of the minimum and maximum limits of WISE values within the batch. If launched, it returns "ko" and - taken by itself - it is of no practical use and does not return a help on how to use them.
- count_line.exe: count the lines in the file passed as input and prints the value on the screen. If input has 10 records, then count_line Input.txt returns 10. If launched without input parameter returns a help on how to use it.
- creaFileProdCart.exe: creates a file in a format acceptable by ProdCart.exe, taking care only of variables on which the combinations must be calculated and replacing the other values with "*". Taken by itself, is of no practical use and launched with no parameters returns a help on how use it.
- creaStringa.exe: creates a string containing the names (one length character) of the variables in the input file as described in “Configura”. Taken by itself, is of no practical use and launched with no parameters returns a help on how to use it.
- runConstrains.pl: is not a real executable, but a Perl script used by the tool runC to apply constraints to Test Set or to n-tuples file. Not to be used directly, unless it is well aware of what you are doing.
- uniqueRowFile.exe: filters out duplicate lines from the file passed as input and print out the uniques ones to the standard output. Do not change the input file. Launched without parameters, it returns a help on how to use it and can be of practical use if you have files with a lot of duplicated lines to "clean". This executable is not used within the first level script and should be considered a self-consistent utility that can be useful in specific cases, thus remaining only a second level utility.
