I've used CUnit and it works well.

The documentation for both CUnit and CPPUnit give instructions on writing 
tests.  For a real example, the KSM (KASP) code available on the Nominet 
download site (http://download.nominet.org.uk/KASP/ksm_20090119.tar.gz) 
uses CUnit for its unit tests.  Please feel free to refer to it or copy 
anything you need from it.
