Common Unit Tests for Delphi / FreePascal

DelphiTools – Serg recent wrote an introduction to unit testing under Lazarus, showing how everything is there, but just that little bit “off” because of different unit names between FPCUnit and DUnit. Not being a fan of ifdef, the prospect of having unit tests “uses” sections littered ...
