Thanks, all

Perhaps I should have said why I was asking. We didn't used to use a test
library for the interactif part. This was not a big problem for me as I
tried to externalise as much of the logic as possible. Now, test librairies
have become compulsory for an interactif program. Which means if I make the
slightest modification to a huge monolith, I will have to get out the huge
corresponding folder containing the photocopies of the 5250 screens and
then go from the start to the finish in the right order and test everything
in the monolith. And no point in trying to rush it, the slightest mistake
and you have to start over again. The cost of development has thus gone up
overnight! I wonder though if we could benefit from this rule to encourage
people to make smaller programs.
