Yagg  is a good tool for this. See also  and the subsequent
 Coppit, D. and Lian, J. 2005. yagg: an easy-to-use generator for
structured test inputs. In Proceedings of the 20th IEEE/ACM
international Conference on Automated Software Engineering (Long
Beach, CA, USA, November 07 - 11, 2005). ASE '05. ACM, New York,
