fuzz

stress-test programs by giving them random input

Variants:
The fuzz generator is designed to attack certain kinds of software and expose one particular kind of bug common in software. This is the situation where the programmer implicitly makes some assumptions about the data stream that the program will be parsing. If the data stream is substantially different then the program might not be able to deal with it.

Added an option to not ask for the version information.

This version of fuzz has several new features.

The program has been autoconf'd and automake'd. It has not been ported to any
other platforms and so most of the tests are kind of bogus but the foundation
is there.
