EUnit Howto: tips, tricks and news

By Erlang Central | Published: April 27, 2009

Recently, the EUnit unit testing framework for Erlang was shipped for
the first time as an official part of the Erlang/OTP distribution. While
the documentation is fairly complete, it is not always obvious how the
various features are supposed to be used in practice. Richard Carlsson, the author of Eunit, will in his talk focus on getting Eunit up and running, tweaking it to fit your build environment,
and leveraging its features in typical testing situations.
He will also briefly present some new additions since the R12B-5 release.

    Father of eunit, edoc and try-catch

    Richard Carlsson has been deeply involved with Erlang since the mid-nineties. He was one of the original members of the High-Performance Erlang group at Uppsala University, and has contributed to many parts of the standard libraries, the Erlang compiler, runtime system, and the language itself. Among other things, he is the author of Erlang's 'EDoc' documentation system and the 'EUnit' unit testing framework.
    After spending three years at Virtutech and then at IAR Systems, he joined Kreditor where he was once again able to work full time with Erlang. He holds a black belt in Karate, but nowadays practices mostly Aikido when he can find the time. He is generally too busy thinking up new stuff to ever finish his PhD.
