Chapter 33. DEBUGGING > TESTING YOUR CODE

TESTING YOUR CODE

It is a sad fact that most major pieces of software released today are released with bugs in them. Maybe it's not so much sad as unavoidable. After all, how do you thoroughly test software? Thousands of different computer configurations are available that vary by one item or another: processor type, processor speed, operating system type, operating system version, video card manufacturer, video card driver version, video settings, hard drive speed, CD-ROM speed, RAM size, system settings, system extensions, and so on.

It's impossible to test on every machine available. However, you can test on a variety of machines and find a majority of the problems. The key is to test on all target platforms and on as many configurations of hardware and operating systems as possible.
