Sure. In fact, there are a set of tests that are run on every class. Many other tests are very similar, so perhaps someone could hack together a simple parser to translate guile to Objective-C?

We should probably settle on what kind of testing framework we will use first...

From the ease of use I'd prefer OCunit but I my knowledge is not funded enough to know if there would be technical obstacles that would prevent us from using it (that is for testing GNUstep classes itself not work based on GNUstep).

If OCunit is not usable for this purpose I would strongly recommend using DejaGnu since it is widely proven to work. For instance GCC uses it. You can simply run it as part of the make process (make -k check). It even has the capabilities to send the test results somewhere. I haven't written a DejaGnu test myself yet but since all those GCC devs use it regularly it surely doesn't require you to have a PhD - and there are already some ObjC tests to learn from.

greetings, Lars
