__COPYRIGHT__ This directory contains our end-to-end SCons tests. They are all meant to be run essentially standalone, with the exception of the TestSCons.py module and the other modules imported by the various tests. These modules are in the QMTest/ subdirectory, and PYTHONPATH needs to be set up correctly so that the test scripts can find them, and so that the SCons script itself can find the build engine modules. There is a wrapper script, runtest.py, that takes care of this for you, so the canonical invocation of a test is: python runtest.py test/option-x.py There is also a "runtest.py -a" option that will search the tree for all tests, and execute them. Some of these tests have code for features that are not yet supported. commented out with a "#XXX" at the beginning of the line; short-circuited entirely by having the test pass via an early call to test.pass_test(), which has a "#XXX" comment at the end of the line If you're trying to implement one of these features, DO NOT BLINDLY ASSUME THAT THE NEW CODE IN THE TEST IS CORRECT. It may have problems that have gone undiscovered due to the fact that the code testing the future feature couldn't be run yet! We're not going to be dogmatic about it, but so that there's some semblance of uniformity, here are the naming conventions for tests: -- All tests end with a .py suffix. -- General form: Feature.py test of specified feature; try to keep this description reasonably short Feature-x.py test of specified feature using option x -- Command line option tests take the form: option-x.py lower-case single-letter option option--X.py upper-case single-letter option (extra hyphen so the file names will be unique on case-insensitive systems) option--lo.py long option; abbreviate the long option name to a few characters For some more information about running the tests and writing them, please refer to the documentation for the testing framework. It can be found in the 'QMTest' folder, as file 'test-framework.rst'.
