in thread How You (Yes You!) Can Get Involved

I suppose I'm looking for a Dick and Jane guide. I've only tested one value and I should test boundary conditions, but I feel I should also be trying to break it in other ways and look at the results. Looking at it right now, there's no validity checking on the input. I only feed it numbers, but there would be nothing stopping someone from feeding it characters. Well, perhaps that's the Right Thing to do, instead of restricting someone else's use of the code. It comes down to the difference between broken code and "creative" use yielding unexpected results.

Cheers,
Ea :wq

    There will be a couple of articles on testing published on Perl.com shortly. Skud (from e-smith) is using real-world examples from her job. I don't know the exact status, but she expected to have the first one ready sometime this week.

    If there are still questions after that, let me know, and I'll work up another article. (If you have specific questions about a chunk of code, drop me a message and I'll take a look at it.)

    Update: Here's one article. I promise I'm not Skud; we've been seen in public in the same room.
