    To create test (and other) data and to be sure any corruption was removed from spatial datasets I often used the ArcInfo Workstation commands GENERATE and UNGENERATE which used easy to ready ASCII formats.

    I'd like to see these in ArcGIS Desktop as tools at ArcView license level.  Create Fishnet was a useful addition a few releases back but without going to Python I don't know an easy way to do the above OOTB.
