It is understandable but Boost comes with two testing frameworks
built-in. There is Boost Test, which Raffi Enficiaud mentions and is
pretty full-featured, and there is also Boost's lightweight_test.hpp,
which I have found adequate for testing vmd and tti. It is always easier
using what is already available, if it has the testing facilities you
need, than to create your own.
