- If you’re new to unit tests, start with Test Infected
- For Java: JUnit (credited for igniting test-driven development)
- For C: there are a number of them, including Check and Andrew Wall’s CUnit (direct .zip download)
- For C++: CppUnit (a C++ port of JUnit)
- For Perl: Perl has its own testing framework, with Test::Class adding a JUnit-like layer (Note: Test::Class is just the topmost layer; while CPAN takes care of most prerequisites, you’ll also need Test::More separately)
