testcode

testcode is a python module for testing for regression errors in numerical (principally scientific) software. Essentially testcode runs a set of calculations, and compares the output data to that generated by a previous calculation (which is regarded to be "correct"). It is designed to be lightweight and highly portable.

testcode can run a set of tests and check the calculated data is within a the desired tolerance of results contained in previous output (using an internal data extraction engine, a user-supplied data extraction program or a user-supplied verification program). The programs to be tested can be run in serial and in parallel and tests can be run in either locally or submitted to a compute cluster running a queueing system such as PBS. Previous tests can be compared and diffed against other tests or benchmarks.
