Yes, I remember during the good old FORTRAN or C days, they used to say that each subroutine or function is to be tested by giving several valid inputs, and several more invalid inputs, and then the response seen.

For example, for a numerical argument, give input within range and at the boundary (for valid inputs), and outside range, one-off inputs, alphanumeric, decimal, integers, negative numbers, etc. (for invalid inputs).
Similarly for strings.

Faintly remember that it used to be called Equivalence Group Testing. Quite fail-proof. Not sure whether it is still being used.
