The cURL Test Suite

  perl (and a unix-style shell)
  diff (when a test fail, a diff is shown)
  stunnel (for HTTPS and FTPS tests)

  'make test'. This invokes the '' perl script. Edit the top
  variables of that script in case you have some specific needs.

  The script breaks on the first test that doesn't do OK. Use -a to prevent
  the script to abort on the first error. Run the script with -v for more
  verbose output. Use -d to run the test servers with debug output enabled as

  Use -s for shorter output, or pass test numbers to run specific tests only
  (like "./ 3 4" to test 3 and 4 only). It also supports test case
  ranges with 'to'. As in "./runtests 3 to 9" which runs the seven tests from
  3 to 9.

  The test script will check that all allocated memory is freed properly IF
  curl has been built with the MALLOCDEBUG define set. The script will
  automatically detect if that is the case, and it will use the ../memanalyze
  script to analyze the memory debugging output.

  If a test case fails, you can conveniently get the script to invoke the
  debugger (gdb) for you with the server running and the exact same command
  line parameters that failed. Just invoke ' <test number> -g' and
  then just type 'run' in the debugger to perform the command through the

  If a test case causes a core dump, analyze it by running gdb like:

          # gdb ../curl/src core

  ... and get a stack trace with the gdb command:

          (gdb) where

  All logs are generated in the logs/ subdirctory (it is emtpied first
  in the script)

  All test-data are put in the data/ subdirctory. Each test is stored in the
  file named according to the test number.

  The test case file format is simply a way to store different sections within
  the same physical file. The different sections are to be described here
  within shortly.


 So far, I've used this system:

 1   -  99   HTTP
 100 - 199   FTP
 200 - 299   FILE
 300 - 399   HTTPS
 400 - 499   FTPS

  ... if we run out of test numbers for a particular protocol, then we need
  to fix it.


  * Port old test cases to the new file format

  * Make work when we PUT without Content-Length:
  * Add persistant connection support and test cases
