Creating and executing a basic testcase

A test project consists of a range of basic tests. These tests can be nested, run in loops, put in structures in whatever way is appropriate for the test organization. There is no hard coded arrays and/or global variables that limits how these can be organized. A TestApe test is made of one plain C function that will setup expectations, call one or more functions in the unit, and validate the result.

In the sample below the test test_addition will call the function calculate in the unit.

  void test_addition(void) {
    int result;
    result = calculate(3,7,'+');

The sample is executed using EXECUTE(test_addition) and this would produce the following output in the log

  Executing test test_addition
  PASSED test test_addition

Even though there is no validation in this test, it will enable coverage analysis, debugging and memory checking of the code in calculate.
