There is a "Tests" directory alongside the source files that contains a 
reasonably extensive suite of tests. I build the library and run the 
tests using the respective makefiles. The VC makefile is "Makefile" 
while the GCC makefile is "GNUmakefile". If you run "nmake" without 
arguments you will be shown a list of targets.
