    This is basically black box testing.

    Here are some ideas. Append some more, if you can..

    1. Insert dollar bill and instead of punching item code, hit return coins. Repeat the process after putting two one dollar bills.
    2. Instert two one dollar bills and hit return coins.
    3. Invalid inputs on machine's keypad.
    4. Insert foreign currency.
    5. Want to buy 75 cents worth item, then instead of inserting three quarters, insert dollar and two quarters. And hit return coins after selcting 75 cents worth item.
    6. Punch the item code which in already sold out.
    7. Want to purchase two 75cents worth item and insert two one dollar bills. Punch the item code one after the other asking for same item again. And then hit return coin.
    8. Insert $20/$100/ bills.
    9. Punch item code without putting money. My favourite.

    Bye RT

    It's the right board - of the ones available on this site.
    You seem to have a pretty good idea already
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I'd forgo punching in item codes and just punch the machine until it falls over, see if the alarm goes off (As it should).

    Can you guess what I think of the (OLD) vending machines at work?

    Are you writing software for a vending machine and want to know how to test it? Or is this just for fun?
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX
