rcov copyright (c) 2004-2006 Mauricio Fernandez <email@example.com> rcov includes xx 0.1.0, copyright (c) 2005, ePark Labs, Inc. and contributors rcov README ============ rcov is a code coverage tool for Ruby. It is commonly used for viewing overall test coverage of target code. It features: * fast execution: 20-300 times faster than previous tools * multiple analysis modes: standard, bogo-profile, "intentional testing", dependency analysis... * detection of uncovered code introduced since the last run ("differential code coverage") * fairly accurate coverage information through code linkage inference using simple heuristics * cross-referenced XHTML and several kinds of text reports * support for easy automation with Rake and Rant * colorblind-friendliness Requirements ------------ * Ruby 1.8 * (recommended) C compiler: you can also use rcov without the rcovrt extension but rcov will be two orders of magnitude slower. The extension requires Ruby 1.8.3 or later. If you're on win32, you can find a pre-built rcovrt extension at http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcov Normal install -------------- De-compress the archive and enter its top directory. Then type: ($ su) # ruby setup.rb This simple step installs rcov under the default location for Ruby libraries. You can also customize the installation by supplying some options to setup.rb. Try "ruby setup.rb --help". A normal (rcovrt-enabled) install requires Ruby >= 1.8.3 and a working C toolchain; if you cannot compile Ruby extensions proceed as described below. If you're on win32, you can find a pre-built rcovrt extension at http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcov You might have to install a "development package" (often named ruby-dev or ruby1.8-dev), or alternatively build ruby from the sources, if the compiler cannot find the headers (ruby.h and friends). Install without the rcovrt extension ------------------------------------ ($su ) # ruby setup.rb all --without-ext will install rcov without building the rcovrt extension. Usage ----- In the common scenario, your tests are under test/ and the target code (whose coverage you want) is in lib/. In that case, all you have to do is use rcov to run the tests (instead of testrb), and a number of XHTML files with the code coverage information will be generated, e.g. rcov -Ilib test/*.rb will execute all the .rb files under test/ and generate the code coverage report for the target code (i.e. for the files in lib/) under coverage/. The target code needs not be under lib/; rcov will detect is as long as it is require()d by the tests. rcov is smart enough to ignore "uninteresting" files: the tests themselves, files installed in Ruby's standard locations, etc. See rcov --help for the list of regexps rcov matches filenames against. rcov can also be used from Rake; see readme_for_rake or the RDoc documentation for more information. The Rakefile included in rcov's sources holds a few tasks that run rcov on itself, producing a number of reports. You can try rake rcov preferably after a full install or ruby setup.rb config ruby setup.rb setup so that the rcovrt extension can be used to speed up the process. This will generate a cross-referenced XHTML report under coverage/. rcov can output information in several formats, and perform different kinds of analyses in addition to plain code coverage.
