Example Usages

A defspec consists of a name, a function to be tested, an input spec, and a validator:

(defspec integers-closed-over-addition
  (fn [a b] (+' a b))                    ;; input fn
  [^long a ^long b]                     ;; input spec
  (assert (integer? %)))                ;; 0 or more validator forms

Given a var, namespace, or directory, you can run the tests for it:

(test-vars #'integers-closed-over-addition)
(test-namespaces 'clojure.test.generative-test)
(test-dirs \"src/test/clojure\")

Succesful test output includes :iterations, :msec, and the :var for each test run:

{:iterations 44645, :msec 1429,
 :var #'clojure.test.generative-test/numbers-closed-over-addition}
