Adding and removing object files from unit

In large software projects the availability of object files may depend on the progress from other groups. It is possible to write the tests, so that they are invariant to the presence of an object file. As soon as the interface has been agreed upon, TestApe will make it possible to write the software using it. Later, when the implementation is ready, the object file can be added, and the same test can be reused to verify that the implementation in the object file, is in line with expectation. Imaging that add.c is a large and complex function that is not initially available when developing calculator.c. The expected behavior of calculator.c can be tested like it shown below.

  void test_addition(void) {
    EXPECT  (add,10);
    VALIDATE(calculate(3,7,'+'), 10);

When add.obj becomes available it can be added to the commandline
