If you haven't alerady, go take a look at "Perl Testing, A Developer's Notebook (Langworth & chromatic), particularly the last chapter ("Testing Everything Else"). There are several tools and tricks that can be applied to testing non-Perl code. Basically, you can treat your C++ as a black box, and wrap it in an eval-block. For a given stimulus, you have an expected response, that you can code for (by examining $@, any temporary files that get written, databases modified, etc.) in a Test::More test harness.

If this were me confronted with this project, I'd strongly consider going down the 'Test' path in parallel with the 'Automation' path. There will be enough cross-talk between the two to make this a very useful approach. The Test path will give you the means to determine and report your C++ code in action, which the Automation path can use to make go/stop and fix/nogo decisions.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
