Hi im still learning testing and bit confused about testing the
parse_file method below


class Data
  def initialize a_file
     @records = parse_file(a_file)
  end

   def parse_file(a_file)
      ....
   end
end

To test parse_file i must first create a new data object i.e.

sample_data = Data.new("survey")
then in my test

assert_equal blah, sample_data.parse_file("sample.txt")

but in the test when i create a new data object the the method  will be
invoked via initialize before ive even tested it which doesnt sit right
with me.

Should i be mocking this? Or is there a simpler solution to this.
