100%. Unit testing is like an art just like programming itself. And you do end up writing some extra code to test, and it takes more time, but it's sooooooooo worth it. Especially in terms of automating reports on code breaking, etc. It's like this, you're gonna spend the time one way or another... time writing good tests or time trying to figure out some crazy bug you have no idea about. Not to say testing will eliminate that, but it sure does help weed out the silly ones.

But if anything else was entered it did not work at all. But as far as the unit testing was concerned, the app worked perfectly.
Fo sho. That's what turned me off of it for so long. No different than using a pointer ya know. A pointer can speed up your application. Can also give it a segfault. The coder in question just wasn't too skilled at writing tests most likely.
