Pentax es ii film camera (how to test?)

HOW DO I TEST OUT THIS CAMERA?
IT DOES NOT HAVE A BATTERY, NO FILM, NOTHING. JUST THE CAMERA ITSELF. How can I test it out to see if it works or not? Or is it not possible without a battery and film?

Thanks!
PS: Currently there's no battery or film, and I'm clicking on the little button which looks like the button to take pictures, but the shutter doesn't do anything... Is it broken?

Here is a copy of the manual, the password is "Pentax"

You don't need film to test, but I would recommend putting new batteries in. The ESII is a bit different from other Pentax cameras.
