# Module doctest version 0.9.6
# Released to the public domain 16-Jan-2001,
# by Tim Peters (

# 2001-02-13 fl: minor tweaks to make it run under both 1.5.2 and 2.0

"""Module doctest -- a framework for running examples in docstrings.
In normal use, end each module M with:
def _test():
import doctest, M # replace M with your module's name
return doctest.testmod(M) # ditto
if __name__ == "__main__":
Then running the module as a script will cause the examples in the
docstrings to get executed and verified:
This won't display anything unless an example fails, in which case the
failing example(s) and the cause(s) of the failure(s) are printed to stdout
(why not stderr? because stderr is a lame hack <0.2 wink>), and the final
line of output is "Test failed.".
Run it with the -v switch instead:
python -v
and a detailed report of all examples tried is printed to stdout, along
with assorted summaries at the end.
You can force verbose mode by passing "verbose=1" to testmod, or prohibit
it by passing "verbose=0". In either of those cases, sys.argv is not
examined by testmod.
In any case, testmod returns a 2-tuple of ints (f, t), where f is the
number of docstring examples that failed and t is the total number of
docstring examples attempted.
+ M.__doc__.
+ f.__doc__ for all functions f in M.__dict__.values(), except those
with private names.
+ C.__doc__ for all classes C in M.__dict__.values(), except those with
private names.
+ If M.__test__ exists and "is true", it must be a dict, and
each entry maps a (string) name to a function object, class object, or
string. Function and class object docstrings found from M.__test__
are searched even if the name is private, and strings are searched
directly as if they were docstrings. In output, a key K in M.__test__
appears with name
<name of M>.__test__.K
Any classes found are recursively searched similarly, to test docstrings in
their contained methods and nested classes. Private names reached from M's
globals are skipped, but all names reached from M.__test__ are searched.
By default, a name is considered to be private if it begins with an
underscore (like "_my_func") but doesn't both begin and end with (at least)
two underscores (like "__init__"). You can change the default by passing
your own "isprivate" function to testmod.
If you want to test docstrings in objects with private names too, stuff
them into an M.__test__ dict, or see ADVANCED USAGE below (e.g., pass your
own isprivate function to Tester's constructor, or call the rundoc method
of a Tester instance).
Warning: imports can cause trouble; e.g., if you do
from XYZ import XYZclass
then XYZclass is a name in M.__dict__ too, and doctest has no way to know
that XYZclass wasn't *defined* in M. So it may try to execute the examples
in XYZclass's docstring, and those in turn may require a different set of
globals to work correctly. I prefer to do "import *"- friendly imports,
a la
import XYY
_XYZclass = XYZ.XYZclass
del XYZ
or (Python 2.0)
from XYZ import XYZclass as _XYZclass
and then the leading underscore stops testmod from going nuts. You may
prefer the method in the next section.
By default, each time testmod finds a docstring to test, it uses a *copy*
of M's globals (so that running tests on a module doesn't change the
module's real globals, and so that one test in M can't leave behind crumbs
that accidentally allow another test to work). This means examples can
freely use any names defined at top-level in M. It also means that sloppy
imports (see above) can cause examples in external docstrings to use
globals inappropriate for them.
You can force use of your own dict as the execution context by passing
"globs=your_dict" to testmod instead. Presumably this would be a copy of
M.__dict__ merged with the globals from other imported modules.
Piece o' cake, provided the modules do their testing from docstrings.
Here's the I use for the world's most elaborate Rational/
floating-base-conversion pkg (which I'll distribute some day):
from Rational import Cvt
from Rational import Format
from Rational import machprec
from Rational import Rat
from Rational import Round
from Rational import utils
modules = (Cvt,
def _test():
import doctest
import sys
verbose = "-v" in sys.argv
for mod in modules:
doctest.testmod(mod, verbose=verbose, report=0)
if __name__ == "__main__":
IOW, it just runs testmod on all the pkg modules. testmod remembers the
names and outcomes (# of failures, # of tries) for each item it's seen, and
passing "report=0" prevents it from printing a summary in verbose mode.
Instead, the summary is delayed until all modules have been tested, and
then "doctest.master.summarize()" forces the summary at the end.
So this is very nice in practice: each module can be tested individually
with almost no work beyond writing up docstring examples, and collections
of modules can be tested too as a unit with no more work than the above.
No problem, as long as the only output generated by the example is the
traceback itself. For example:
>>> a = [None]
>>> a[1]
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
IndexError: list index out of range
Note that only the exception type and value are compared (specifically,
only the last line in the traceback).
doctest.testmod() captures the testing policy I find most useful most
often. You may want other policies.
testmod() actually creates a local instance of class doctest.Tester, runs
appropriate methods of that class, and merges the results into global
Tester instance doctest.master.
You can create your own instances of doctest.Tester, and so build your own
policies, or even run methods of doctest.master directly. See
doctest.Tester.__doc__ for details.
Oh ya. It's easy! In most cases a copy-and-paste of an interactive
console session works fine -- just make sure the leading whitespace is
rigidly consistent (you can mix tabs and spaces if you're too lazy to do it
right, but doctest is not in the business of guessing what you think a tab
>>> # comments are ignored
>>> x = 12
>>> x
>>> if x == 13:
... print "yes"
... else:
... print "no"
... print "NO"
... print "NO!!!"
Any expected output must immediately follow the final ">>>" or "..." line
containing the code, and the expected output (if any) extends to the next
">>>" or all-whitespace line. That's it.
+ Expected output cannot contain an all-whitespace line, since such a line
is taken to signal the end of expected output.
+ Output to stdout is captured, but not output to stderr (exception
tracebacks are captured via a different means).
+ If you continue a line via backslashing in an interactive session, or for
any other reason use a backslash, you need to double the backslash in the
docstring version. This is simply because you're in a string, and so the
backslash must be escaped for it to survive intact. Like:
>>> if "yes" == \\
... "y" + \\
... "es": # in the source code you'll see the doubled backslashes
... print 'yes'
The starting column doesn't matter:
>>> assert "Easy!"
>>> import math
>>> math.floor(1.9)
and as many leading whitespace characters are stripped from the expected
output as appeared in the initial ">>>" line that triggered it.
If you execute this very file, the examples above will be found and
executed, leading to this output in verbose mode:
Running doctest.__doc__
Trying: a = [None]
Expecting: nothing
Trying: a[1]
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
IndexError: list index out of range
Trying: x = 12
Expecting: nothing
Trying: x
Expecting: 12
if x == 13:
print "yes"
print "no"
print "NO"
print "NO!!!"
... and a bunch more like that, with this summary at the end:

# 0,0,1 06-Mar-1999
# initial version posted
# 0,0,2 06-Mar-1999
# loosened parsing:
# cater to stinkin' tabs
# don't insist on a blank after PS2 prefix
# so trailing "... " line from a compound stmt no longer
# breaks if the file gets whitespace-trimmed
# better error msgs for inconsistent leading whitespace
# 0,9,1 08-Mar-1999
# exposed the Tester class and added client methods
# plus docstring examples of their use (eww - head-twisting!)
# fixed logic error in reporting total # of tests & failures
# added __test__ support to testmod (a pale reflection of Christian
# Tismer's vision ...)
# removed the "deep" argument; fiddle __test__ instead
# simplified endcase logic for extracting tests, and running them.
# before, if no output was expected but some was produced
# anyway via an eval'ed result, the discrepancy wasn't caught
# made TestClass private and used __test__ to get at it
# many doc updates
# speed _SpoofOut for long expected outputs
# 0,9,2 09-Mar-1999
# throw out comments from examples, enabling use of the much simpler
# exec compile(... "single") ...
# for simulating the runtime; that barfs on comment-only lines
# used the traceback module to do a much better job of reporting
# exceptions
# run __doc__ values thru str(), "just in case"
# privateness of names now determined by an overridable "isprivate"
# function
# by default a name now considered to be private iff it begins with
# an underscore but doesn't both begin & end with two of 'em; so
# e.g. Class.__init__ etc are searched now -- as they always
# should have been
# 0,9,3 18-Mar-1999
# added .flush stub to _SpoofOut (JPython buglet diagnosed by
# Hugh Emberson)
# repaired ridiculous docs about backslashes in examples
# minor internal changes
# changed source to Unix line-end conventions
# moved __test__ logic into new Tester.run__test__ method
# 0,9,4 27-Mar-1999
# report item name and line # in failing examples
# 0,9,5 29-Jun-1999
# allow straightforward exceptions in examples - thanks to Mark Hammond!
# 0,9,6 16-Jan-2001
# fiddling for changes in Python 2.0: some of the embedded docstring
# examples no longer worked *exactly* as advertised, due to minor
# language changes, and running doctest on itself pointed that out.
# Hard to think of a better example of why this is useful <wink>.

"""m, name=None, globs=None, verbose=None, isprivate=None, report=1
Test examples in docstrings in functions and classes reachable from
module m, starting with m.__doc__. Private names are skipped.
Also test examples reachable from dict m.__test__ if it exists and is
not None. m.__dict__ maps names to functions, classes and strings;
function and class docstrings are tested even if the name is private;
strings are tested directly, as if they were docstrings.
Return (#failures, #tests).
See doctest.__doc__ for an overview.
Optional keyword arg "name" gives the name of the module; by default
use m.__name__.
Optional keyword arg "globs" gives a dict to be used as the globals
when executing examples; by default, use m.__dict__. A copy of this
dict is actually used for each docstring, so that each docstring's
examples start with a clean slate.
Optional keyword arg "verbose" prints lots of stuff if true, prints
only failures if false; by default, it's true iff "-v" is in sys.argv.
Optional keyword arg "isprivate" specifies a function used to
determine whether a name is private. The default function is
doctest.is_private; see its docs for details.
Optional keyword arg "report" prints a summary at the end when true,
else prints nothing at the end. In verbose mode, the summary is
detailed, else very brief (in fact, empty if all tests passed).
Advanced tomfoolery: testmod runs methods of a local instance of
class doctest.Tester, then merges the results into (or creates)
global Tester instance doctest.master. Methods of doctest.master
can be called directly too, if you want to do something unusual.
Passing report=0 to testmod is especially useful then, to delay
displaying a summary. Invoke doctest.master.summarize(verbose)
when you're done fiddling.
