UTEST
Simple Unit Testing for Erlang
==============================
--------
PREAMBLE
--------
This is an experiment in using text files to specify tests instead of having to
write (and debug) unit test code because I'm too lazy to do that. 'utest' is
usable but it is strictly experimental/PRE-ALPHA software. I would welcome
feedback on how to extend its usefulness.
-------
INSTALL
-------
$ pwd
/usr/local/erlang-libs (or wherever you keep them)
$ git clone git://github.com/komone/utest.git
$ cd utest
$ erl -make
-----------
GET STARTED
-----------
$ erl
Eshell V5.6.5 (abort with ^G)
1> utest:help().
help/0 - this message
info/1 - get information about an application
gen/1 - generate test files for an application
run/1 - run the test suite for an application
eval/1 - try out a test string to see if it will work
config/0 - view current unit test configuration settings
config/2 - change one of the current configuration settings
ok
2> utest:info(myapp).
{suite,myapp,"0.1",development,"My test application",
"/usr/local/erlang-libs/myapp",
"2009-02-14T17:45:23.0Z",nonode@nohost,undefined,
[myapp,myapp_util],
...etc...
ok
3> utest:gen(myapp).
FILE "/usr/local/erlang-libs/myapp/utest/myapp.test"
FILE "/usr/local/erlang-libs/myapp/utest/myapp_util.test"
ok
# Add test cases to the test files and then run them
# For example...
4>utest:run(myapp).
Running...
FAIL [myapp] to_char("A") == 66
SKIP [myapp_util] eqiv(obj_new(), decode("{}")) REASON undef
RESULT [myapp] Total 65, Pass 63, Fail 1, Skipped 1
ok

WRITING TESTS
-------------
Tests are specified, one per line, in files called, by default,
<module_name>.test that are, by default, created in a subdirectory of the
application/project called 'utest'. These are text files and allow you to
specify tests in erlang-like syntax.
