Using a String Length Calculator in Cross-browser Testing
A string length calculator can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if you have a web form that accepts only certain length input, then you want to make sure that longer inputs are rejected. With this utility, you can quickly prepare test cases for this scenario. You can load strings of various lengths in the input of this program, and get their lengths in the output. Then you can use this information to write unit tests for your web form. You'll want to allow shorter strings in the input but as soon as the length is longer, you'll want to reject them. Additionally, if you have a longer text and you want to find out how many characters are in this text, you can run it through this utility and get character count in the output.
