Welcome! to CppUnit Wiki.
What is CppUnit?
CppUnit is a C++ unit testing framework. It started its life as a port of JUnit to C++ by Michael Feathers. For a quick tour of unit testing with CppUnit, see the Cookbook in the latest documentation. For an introduction to unit testing, see UnitTest, ProgrammerTest, and CodeUnitTestFirst at the C2.com wiki.
