        As part of my project my group has been involved in developing a
parser for a specific application. It describes a messaging system
using a formal grammar expressed using BNF (actually a variant of it).
Now that we have developed the product we would like to test it

With manual input, I am not certain how thorough a job we can do. Is
anyone in this newsgroup aware of any tools that will take a formal
grammar as input and generate test cases from that ?

Thanks for your help.
