The 3.0.0 version (which is slightly backwards incompatible) represents several years of minor improvements stemming from the use of unit++ in a major project at work.
To improve usability some the macro track started in the 2 series has been finished and new easy to use macros handles normal member function test cases as well as exception generating member function cases.
The html documentation has disappeared, since doc++ has vanished from my world---one day I will set up doxygen properly, but not today. ... read more
Thanks to Clive Crous I have obtained a CMakeLists.txt for using cmake to generate makefile for the unit++ project.
Clive tells that he has generated unit++ for MinGW and linux, so this might help other people out there.
Thank you, Clive :)
This feature was requested in the project I'm working at, since we use unit++ from inside vim.
The new feature allows the failed assertions to be interpreted by the IDE, hence to capture and use failed test for lists or placing the cursor.
Unfortunately this had to use preprocessor macros. This has forced some incompatibilities with the previous release:
1) fail() has changed to assert_fail()
2) assert_true and assert_eq might wreck havoc, if they have been used as names for something else, where unit++.h is included.
Lews Therin has provided the workings for VS 2003: a project file.
I have included it, but I have no way of testing it.
Some of the nice guys at debian (martin f krafft) has made debian packages out of Unit++.
Hence debian users can install the unit++ library with:
apt-get install -t unstable libunit++-dev
and the doc (/usr/share/docs/libunit++-doc/html):
apt-get install -t unstable libunit++-doc
As pointed out by Carlo Wood (thanks for the patch) it was difficult to write local test runners due to the oversight that some of the header where not released.
That has now been remedied.
Furthermore I made a slight improvement to the Qt autoconf macro allowing it to configure with my Debian Qt3 version. And the GUI actually works with Qt3 `-)
From Mats Wolpers I have received a fine tale of how it was uning unit++ when every aspect of C++ was fresh and new. It might prove a good place to start if other novices are undertaking the endeavour to teach thenselves C++ accompanied by responsible use of unit tests. Thanks a lot Mats.
I have given up compiling unit++ on VC++ 6.0.
The apparent errors are fixable (by refraining from using for_each), but using a test suite triggers an internal error in the compiler. It looks like problems resolving the exception handling core needed from a blok with some temporary testcase objects.
This is not to my liking, I hate giving up, but I have no further insight to offer.
The code have been working now for half a year without complaints, except one: The exit codes true/false was swapped.
The bug fix has now finally been released...
ASdded GUI (Qt based); incorporated some port fixes from several guys, see the change log; thanks to the contributors!
Thanks to Kenn Knowles there is now a m4 macro to deternine unit++ location in configure for projects that want to depend on it.
There is no package release since that is still waiting for me to get time to finish my GUI endeavour.
Autoconf/configure maintained installation has been added, so the makefile should now support a wider range of environments.
Life would be substantially easier if we could all agree on the suffixes of sources and object modules *SIGH*
Release 1.0.1 corrects a minor bug in the makefile.
Future plans includes a signal handling system, that gives a test a chance of surviving a illegal something.
And I would like a feature that hijacks the std err stream, so that things written on cerr during a test only is displayed if the test fails.
The first production version is released
It has performed one test suite succesfully, the test suite for itself.
