    C++: C++ has quite a number of benchmarking libraries some of the recent ones involving C++ 20's flexibility. The most notable being Google Bench and UT. C does not have many specific benchmarking libraries, but you can easily integrate C code with C++ benchmarking libraries in order to test the performance of your C code.

    By Boost.UI you mean this?

    In Boost.UT there is a number of different styles to add a parametrized test case. All of them are pretty cryptic bue to heavy isage of oeverloaded operators of custom "non-public" classes. Except for the for-loop method, in all other methods the list of parameter values goes after the test procedure definition. I find this inconvenient, as I want to see list of parameter value next to the test name. This is what I used to from the times I was coding a lot of unit tests in C#.

    Coming from googletest/googlemock, I found FakeIt to be a rabbit hole. In particular, I recall not being able to match const reference parameters or something strange like that -- the matcher values would dangle I think. Ah yes, this issue here: https://github.com/eranpeer/FakeIt/issues/108.
