FUnit: a Fortran Unit Testing Framework

Filed under: Development,Software Engineering — Jannis at 2:30 pm on Monday, April 30, 2007

On October 4, 2001, Mike Hill (then of Object Mentor, now of Industrial Logic) visited NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia and gave a test-first design talk at the Institute for Computer and Applied Sciences and Engineering (ICASE). Copies of his slides are available at icase.edu/series/MPP.

Mike spent the afternoon with Bil Kleb, Bill Wood, Karen Bibb, and Mike Park reasoning out how we might create a testing framework for Fortran 90 to use during FUN3D code development. By the end of the afternoon we had a working prototype based on the macro expansion techniques employed in Mike Hill‘s cpptestkit. We quickly found C-preprocessor macros to be too restrictive and rewrote the framework in Ruby.
