Without a doubt, Boost.Test singlehandedly eliminated one of my biggest
objections to test-first coding. I still don't do it near as much as I
would like, but Boost.Test surely eliminated one of my biggest
I really like what it provide.
However... I still can't figure out how to use the macro that checks
equivalence between floating point numbers. The interface is just too
strange, and the docs are not very clear.
I played around with it for a while, and then just stopped trying to use
it. That's really my biggest complaint with the test library (so, it
can't be too bad for me at least ;-).
