Unit testing PLC code

Does anyone know of any solutions to enable unit testing of PLC code similar to what's available in the software engineering world? Basically something that would enable you to run a series of tests through the logic of your code checking for outcomes. Preferably run in a PC environment from a script file producing an output log.

Thanks,
Robert McDonald

These things are available for many PLC brands. Which one are you using?

Omron have CX-Simulator which operates as a virtual PLC with CX-Programmer.
Other PLC manufacturers have similar packages.
