Introduction
------------

CxxTest is a JUnit/CppUnit/xUnit-like framework for C++.

Its advantages over existing alternatives are that it:
 - Doesn't require RTTI
 - Doesn't require member template functions
 - Doesn't require exception handling
 - Doesn't require any external libraries (including memory management, 
   file/console I/O, graphics libraries)

This makes it extremely portable and usable.

CxxTest is available under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence (LGPL).
See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lesser.html for the license.

Simple user's guide
-------------------

1. Create a test suite header file:

MyTest.h:
  #include <cxxtest/TestSuite.h>

  class MyTestSuite : public CxxTest::TestSuite 
  {
  public:
      void testAddition( void )
      {
          TS_ASSERT( 1 + 1 > 1 );
          TS_ASSERT_EQUALS( 1 + 1, 2 );
      }
  };


2. Generate the tests file:

 # cxxtestgen.pl -o tests.cpp MyTestSuite.h


3. Create a main function that runs the tests

main.cpp:
  #include <cxxtest/ErrorPrinter.h>

  int main( void )
  {
      CxxText::ErrorPrinter::runAllTests();
      return 0;
  }


4. Compile and run!

  # g++ -o main main.cpp tests.cpp
  # ./main
  Running 1 test(s).OK!
