Getting started with Google Test
Google Test is one of the most widely used testing frameworks for C++. The Chromium projects and the LLVM compiler are among the projects that are using it for unit testing. Google Test enables developers to write unit tests on multiple platforms, using multiple compilers. Google Test is a portable, lightweight framework that has a simple yet comprehensive API for writing tests using asserts; here, tests are grouped into test suites and test suites into test programs.
The framework provides useful features, such as repeating a test a number of times and breaking a test to invoke the debugger at the first failure.

This recipe will show you how to install the framework and set up your first testing project.
The Google Test framework, just like Boost.Test, has a macro-based API. Although...
