digitalmars.D.learn - HOWTO: automatic test a D program

Hi,

I m looking for some methods/tools to implement tests on my very 
little application about strings manipulation.

I m looking to
- avoid regressions
- measure performance
- learn it

I made a quick search on the newsgroup archives, without success.

In case my question is obvious, i would say that this is my very 
first desktop program,  i m really unfamiliar with this 
environment.

Any suggestions are appreciated !
bye

D has built in support for unit testing. It's a very simple system but it should cover the first point, regressions. It's possible to build a library solution on top with more features. D also supports contract programming via pre and post conditions. http://dlang.org/unittest.html http://dlang.org/dbc.html I have a very simple unit test framework part of my serialization library: https://github.com/jacob-carlborg/orange/blob/master/orange/test/UnitTester.d -- /Jacob Carlborg

There's also dunit: https://github.com/jmcabo/dunit and benchmark from std.datetime: http://dlang.org/phobos/std_datetime.html#benchmark

And unittest blocks of course: unittest { // test code here } dmd -unittest
