calling modules from user space


Hi,
Is there a way to call a module from user space. Actually I am new to module programming. I have created a module and inserted it. Now how do i test it if it is working properly?
Thanks in advance.

Modules are known to use kernel space, that's why it's hard to test them as you can easily crash your kernel. But there's a solution not to reboot your machine each time... i.e. to test modules in user space, that's to use User Mode Linux ( http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/ )
