For people who find the StirMark benchmark tool overkill while developing a watermarking system, there is an older version (3.1) that is CLI based. Unfortunately, for a long time this was not available on the internet, so we used to host a copy here. It was recently made available again on the author’s page, so this is no longer necessary. Please follow the link below to Fabien Petitcolas’ official page for the StirMark benchmark. You can find there versions for Windows and Linux, complete with source code.
