In a previous paper, we presented several extensions of ACP with conditional expressions, including one with a retrospection operator on conditions to allow for looking back on conditions under which preceding actions have been performed. In this paper, we add a constant for a process that is only capable of terminating successfully to those extensions of ACP, which can be very useful in applications. It happens that in all cases the addition of this constant is unproblematic.
Instruction sequences are used as a simple theoretical conceptualization of computer programs. A theory of instruction sequence testing may serve as a model for a theory of software testing. Instruction sequences testing is considered a new topic for which definitions may be freely contemplated without being restricted by existing views on software testing.
The problem of developing a theory of instruction sequence testing is posed. A survey is given of motivations and scenarios for developing a theory of instruction sequence testing.
