Create an utility library (LIBBU) API unit test for badmagic.c

completed by: agkphysics

mentors: Sean

There are more than 300 library functions in our core LIBBU library. As a core library used by nearly every one of BRL-CAD's tools, testing those functions for correct behavior is important.


  • include/bu.h
  • src/libbu/badmagic.c
  • src/libbu/tests/*.c


  • src/libbu/tests/badmagic.c
  • src/libbu/tests/CMakeLists.txt

This task involves implementing a new unit test for any of LIBBU's source files that do not already have a unit test defined. The test should run all of the public functions and be hooked into our build system. We have lots of existing unit tests to follow as an example.
