Thinking in C++ Vol 2 - Practical Programming
Prev Home Next


Much of the headache of software engineering can be avoided by being deliberate about what you re doing. You ve probably been using mental assertions as you ve crafted your loops and functions, even if you haven t routinely used the assert( ) macro. If you ll use assert( ), you ll find logic errors sooner and end up with more readable code as well. Remember to only use assertions for invariants, though, and not for runtime error handling.

Nothing will give you more peace of mind than thoroughly tested code. If it s been a hassle for you in the past, use an automated framework, such as the one we ve presented here, to integrate routine testing into your daily work. You (and your users!) will be glad you did.
