[erlang-questions] Module mock-up's

I'm not sure this is what you need, but did you look at eunit?
Google for eunit erlang.
For my tests I use a small module I developed when I was learning
erlang. It's enough for most of my needs, though I should really learn
the test_server and yatsy :-)
If you want to take a look download sgte:
It's the file sgeunit.erl in the test/src directory.
In the file you find some test to test itself.
