Abstract A method for determining test information for software modules in a digital device, said test information being determined through the execution of test functions. The device contains a plurality of flags, each flag being associated with a software module, each software module being associated with at least one test function. The method comprises the steps of: executing a test function as a function of the value of the flag associated with the corresponding software module; providing resulting test information for access by a user. Another object of the invention is a device for implementing the method.
