That's OK.

It is not. What is worse, people selling the compilers, etc. are no longer held to standards. In the olden days, everybody who wanted sell a FORTRAN, had to pbutt the Navy tests. So all FORTRANs had some commonality.

And code and anything else each user expects to do with a computer system. This package would be an individual; no two will be alike because everybody does things differently and does different things. It like keeping up your resume. Keeping up your computing test package will be a requirement. If you can't pee without some computer interaction, you had better have some way to make a choice.

It's a whole bunch of things. It would also be tests of stuff that bit the individual. If kid is in physics, his sanity checks based on past bug experience will be...

The GUI is making this a requirement because nobody will know what they're running, where it's running nor what is running if all they ever see a pretty TV picture.

No, there isn't. It is impossible to test an infinite number of things.

*Results*, not just output.

There is no literature. Nobody is thinking further than almost next year. I get very little sense of thinking more than five years in advance.

Listening to real scientists, mathematicians and work-hardened engineers (preferably mechanical engineers) would prove to be more instructive.
