When it comes to test frameworks why should the C family always be playing catch-up to Java, .Net and Ruby? Why should we make do with a choice of hand-me-down frameworks that force us to write our test code so differently from our production code - often in order to conform to an xUnit template that made sense in other languages?
Why should C & C++ test frameworks be second class citizens due to lack of features such as reflection or annotations? Objective-C frameworks do better, but still are limiting and awkward.
Why should testing be so often put off because of the hassle of installing and using a framework?
CATCH changes all that with an innovative, native C++, framework - with Objective-C bindings. Its author, Phil Nash, is here to explain how and why.
