another question - how do you following thing in Erlang?
in OO world I can define some object, then inherit from it in unit test, and
override some functions. Thus i can create necessary environment for tested
class. How this can be implemented in Erlang? I also accept answers "this is
not an erlangish way at all" :)
It couldn't be easier if you follow the advice to have a test/1 function
that is exported instead of calling the functions individually.
test(1) -> ...; % The test cases you want to
test(77) -> ...; % override or
test(102) -> ...; % add go here
test(X) -> bar:test(X). % Then you "inherit" from module bar.
