The question doesn't depend on any concrete language - tag C# removed.

comment As a junior programmer, how do I quickly make changes to large unfamiliar software?
I have in IT for 30 years and only the last year I am working on a project that uses test units. Advising to rely on test units (personally I do not consider them a nice change for analytic documentation), be at first sure that there really are some.

comment How to do external API testing (blackbox)
Yes, he hadn't said that. But if he asks "how to make sure their API is working as expected" not mentioning test unites, "it seems to me", that he doesn't know them. As for automated integration tests, he doesn't know them even with higher probability, he mentioned merely "some sort of automatic software". You are awaiting from the people the same knowledges as yours, but in these themes 99% of programmers (including me) know far less. and 90% far far far less.

comment How to do external API testing (blackbox)
I totally agree, but it seems to me, that the questioner hasn't experience with testing units and doesn't know the scheme of work with them. I mean: find critical points, write test units, run all tests, debug, during debugging find new critical points, write new units, repeat the last 4 steps after every API change.

Sorry, I can't find the correct English word. We are talking about real life, not mathematics. Any mathematician sentence is conditional, even if it doesn't seem so. Conditional sentences yes, can be universal positive and true. Answer is edited.

No, 90-99% of programming calculators were turing complete, too. At least what was sold by this name.
