there is a module in Python 2.2's standard library called unittest and
its interface will look very familiar if you are used to xUnit (NUnit,
JUnit, etc).  Just "import unittest"


If you wanted some more help in dealing with a large suite of tests,
you could use the nose module,

requires at least Python 2.3 .
