$ cd tests/generic
$ ../../lsqa.pl -b 001
Random file copier to produce chains of identical files so the head
and the tail can be diff'd at the end of each iteration.

Exercises creat, write and unlink for a variety of directory sizes,
and
checks for data corruption.

run [config]

config has one line per file with filename and byte size, else use
the default one below.
$ ../../lsqa.pl -b 005
Test symlinks & ELOOP
$

Do we even really need to change them? Fix the lsqa.pl script be
able to take a directory argument, and just use the script to get
the description....

Cheers,

Dave.
