[jawsscripts] Re: Something I thought of today - general software testing

Would sort of be more proprietary software/environment this side, but in any 
case, like other guys said, there are sort of specific testing products out 
there, but it was just something had thought of.

Thanks anyway, and will just say another thing still thinking about is sort of 
creating small game things using just the scripts, but, for example, need to 
look into calling functions from com components/dlls from within the script to 
be able to do something like retrieve random numbers.

Stay well

never thought of it, if someone were willing to make such a set, I have two 
machines here that I can put on running such tests on a smaller scale, and 
would be willing to do so if there is a real-time interest and someone who 
is willing to point me at sources of software that is needed and needs the 
testing!
