Hi,
In addition: for "dummy inputs," from what my professor told us, try using
random number generator with a fixed limits on both sides e.g. between -100
to 100 or time based input using time_t.
Cheers,
Joseph

Good question, the answer is that you don't ever need real input.  You
need a representative sample of what input should be but you don't need
any real input.  This is often a key for programmers getting a project
or not getting a project especially in secure environments.  Case in
point, a department is doing a certain kind of workbook calculation and
needs it taken to a compiled form outside of excel.  The people in the
department don't want to expose results of actual past or ongoing
calculations.  So what they can do is to provide a dummy set of data
which will calculate when programming is done correctly a useful dummy
set of results none of which are remotely close to anything they're
doing in their department.  A programmer who gets the assignment is
perhaps told the calculation has three inputs input1 input2 and input3
and the calculation will yield output1.  They do the programming with
the dummy set of data and perhaps do it with several different sets of 3
inputs and when all answers return as expected, the customer department
if they put their dummy inputs together properly and got the right
calculations will then be able to use the new program with real inputs
and properly expect to get real useful outputs.

If I understand the question correctly, how would you ever code output 
without first having the input to process?
