GoogleTest, Unit Test for C++

There are several unit test frameworks for C/C++ but we will take a look at Google Test.

First you will need to download and build it. It’s available here.
Follow the instructions how to build it for your platform (for Windows I used Visual Studio to build it. The solution is located at googletest-master\googletest\msvc\2010 folder).

Now download small project I created to give it a try – GoogleTestTest.
