You test for everything that's in the documentation.

If the docs say it does something, then test that the code does that
thing.  If the docs say that it *doesn't* do something, then test to
make sure that it really doesn't do it.

You also know, seeing that you wrote it, what all the edge cases are,
where a small change in the input will cause a large change in the
output.  Test around those.

Figuring out *how* to test it is something that I'm sure we can help
with.  I've got far more experience than I ever really wanted of helping
people with tests.  Get as far as you can on your own, of course, but if
you get into difficulties, just ask.
