pTest: PHP Unit Tester in 9 Lines Of Code
Aug 13, 2007 @ 13:05:00

On the SitePoint PHP blog, there's a new post from Paul Annesley about his latest creation - a nine line unit tester for PHP, pTest.

I was recently working on a command line PHP tool, and didn't have easy access to our normal PHP unit testing framework built around SimpleTest. [...] I didn't need support for mock objects or complicated assertions - just a bare basic assertTrue() would do the trick.

He includes the code (of course) and an example of it in action, three tests with their assertions. It's a simple little tool made of a simple purpose, a starting place for developers just learning unit testing to learn from.
