pFUnit is a Fortran framework for unit testing following the xUnit model.[1] Capabilities include parallel execution using MPI and OpenMP.[2] Development began at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in 2005. The framework makes extensive use of modern standard features of Fortran (2003, 2008), like support for object oriented programming. A python-based preprocessor provides directives reminiscent of other xUnit testing frameworks (e.g. @assert), as well as support for parameterized test cases. pFUnit can be built using either a GNU make or CMake process.

It is published under the NASA Open Source Agreement version 1.3.[3]
