I while ago I needed a program to run another program at a random time within a set time period.
The application was a type of training exercise where I wanted a program to run a set of events at a random time.
PhilKC responded and produced a very useful utility named RRunner which works very well.
I now need a slightly more sophisticated version:
When the program starts, or is running and reaches a preset start time, it should wait a random length of time (up to some preset limit), select a random program from a specified folder and run it. It should then wait another random length of time (up to some preset limit), select another program at random from a specified folder and run it.
This should continue until either a preset end time occurs or the program is closed.
The idea being that each of the programs in the specified folder will result in a different set of events occuring. These will appear at random throughout the specified period.
Added desirable functions would be the ability to run the program from either a Windows interface or from the command line (with switches for the start time, end time, folder and time limit for delays) and also the ability to have more than one version of the programme running at the same time to have different time periods, delays and folders.
Thanks in advance
