Hey everyone.
Does anyone know if there is a program anywhere that can generate all possible A..Za..z strings from length 1 to some custom length. Example: limit length to 5:
a,b,c,d. .... aa,ab,ac,ad..zz, aaa,aab,aac,aad... zzz, ... aaaaa,aaaab,aaaac...zzzzz.
Just generate all possible combinations. Thank you.

Ok, I have it up.  YOu shoulda waited 1 more day, I was kinda busy.  It has a slow runtime, and will freeze up if you got very little RAM, but will work for lengths up to 5.  I will work on the runtime, and should have it up by next week.  SOrry about the time delay, but I was a little busy.  http://www.geocities.com/programman33442/stringgen.exe

Correction - it's http://www.geocities.com/programman33442/stringgen.zip .  Forgot geocities doesn't allow .exe files.  It will send the list to a text file called "combos" in whatever directory you put the porgram in

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

ok, its still big, but its better...caution: text files will be big because of the number of possible combinations...for example, a text file for strings of length 4 will be abot 2.5 MB.  http://www.geocities.com/programman33442/stringgen2.zip

:). calm down, daniel, and thanks for your efforts. I found some crappy old soft online myself, though it generates like 200+MB text files, so I droped the whole idea and chose another approach.
