I saw that 18.56% of the votes don't know what unit testing is, so here goes:

From Wikipedia

In computer programming, unit testing is a procedure used to validate that individual units of source code are working properly. A unit is the smallest testable part of an application. In procedural programming a unit may be an individual program, function, procedure etc, while in object-oriented programming, the smallest unit is always a Class; which may be a base/super class, abstract class or derived/child class. Units are distinguished from modules in that modules are typically made up of units.


The only programmers that are better than C programmers are those who code in 1's and 0's..... Smile | :)
