On the documentation side, this chapter will cover one tool at the interface level (Doxygen) and another that helps you document and develop every step of the program (CWEB). The chapter will also give a quick introduction to the test harness, which will allow you to write lots of tests for your code quickly. Once all your tests are written, nothing can possibly go wrong, but the chapter concludes with some considerations about error reporting just in case.
