There are alot of test harnesses available.

Last year I used NUnit for a .Net project I was working on. With a gui from which to run tests from it was easy to use and see the results.
http://www.nunit.org/

This was based on the version JUnit for Java
http://www.junit.org/index.htm

There are versions of JUnit built for C++
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cppunit

These are opn source so you can make any required customizations.

In the past I have worked in a team where we used our own test harness for C++. The project involved text output produced everyday from an automated build and test environment. The text output was compared against a known result. Any differences were reported via email. It took a bit to setup but saved us heaps of time alerting us to errors before code was released.

Leah, I always considered Junit, cppunit, etc as simply test tools.  Although they do have a framework which does porvide for a "test harness."
I will wait for more comments, then split the points.  cheers
