The first thing to do is post in the right category (forum, mailing other users??), for he who doesn't know how to organize his posts certainly won't know how to organize his code... :)

As for API testing, well, it's not that hard. Define what your functions are supposed to do, e.g. what values they're supposed to return on which inputs. Give the functions those borderline inputs and see what you get back. Make sure it's the right thing.

In general, testing involves making sure that the program works even on the borderline (i.e. difficult) cases.

Two kinds of ways to find borderline cases:
1- Black Box testing
Pretend that you don't know the internals, and find borderline cases based on the theory of what you're doing
2- White Box testing
Suddenly remember about how the internals work, and find borderline cases based on your specific implementation.

Your question has nothing to do with the "forum - how to use it", and really nothing to do with anything covered on this site.

Try a Google search.
