    821 == Task : Increase Test Coverage for NumMatrix2D == 
    822  
    823 '''Title''': Increase Test Coverage for NumMatrix2D 
    824  
    825 '''Category''': Code 
    826  
    827 '''Difficulty''': medium 
    828  
    829 '''Estimated time''': 4 hours 
    830  
    831 '''Task description''': Consists of: 
    832  
    833     * Tests are an important part of verifying the behavior of software. The Parrot-Linear-Algebra (PLA) project has several tests to exercise it's core PMC types, but needs more to cover additional input cases, especially error conditions. 
    834     * Tests are needed for basic arithmetic operations (addition and multiplication) and several methods calls (gemm, row operations, etc). 
    835     * Tests should cover cases where input matrices have incorrect sizes, where the wrong types of PMCs are passed to operations and methods, and where invalid values are used 
    836     * The user is expected to write approximately 15 new tests for the NumMatrix2D type to cover conditions that are not already tested 
    837  
    838 '''Benefits''': PLA will benefit strongly from additional test coverage. Tests help to prove that the software works correctly, and prevent breakages when things are changed in the future. More tests help inform users about possible consequences to their own software when using PLA under certain conditions. 
    839  
    840 '''Requirements''': Knowledge of programming (no specific languages), Linear algebra, access to a Linux system 
    841
