I know it sounds crazy, but I'm testing some scripts to detect suspect tables and indexes in Sybase and I'm wondering how to deliberately force a table or index into suspect or corrupt status.  Any ideas?

Well Mr Crazy,

Try fetching the on-disk placement(I don't have a Sybase engine on site , nor documentatio,which means I can't tell you which system table provides you this information) from one of those indexes /tables and alter it with a hex editor .
and do a select on that table to make the engine "see" it is corrupt.

But doing that will make your database corrupt , and you will need to restore.

Greetings
