Looking at your examples:

  • I've got a script that moves users' mailboxes into their home directories...: Write functions that return the list of users and test that; write functions that move fake files to temp directories, etc.
  • I've got another that kills processes left by users ..: Create fake processes and then kill them. Check to ensure that you killed them. Simple.

    I'm not a test-driven coding zealot though. In some cases the script is so simple it really doesn't warrant much testing. The argument for always using test-driven development is a lot like 'thou shalt use classes to code sayeth the OO God' which, as you may already know, is a bunch of nonsense. Use whatever you think is best.

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
