This repository is where I am keeping tests for assignment 1 for CS 453. There is also a test harness. To get started, just clone this repo:

git clone https://github.com/srawlins/cs453-assignment1.2-tests

Then add your myhtml2txt to your $PATH, and run go-test-now.sh. Alternatively, you can pass in the desired program to test as the first argument to go-test-now.sh.

How it Works

The test harness works as follows: myhtml2txt must be in your $PATH (or must be passed in as the first argument), so that it can be executed against the test files. Inside this repository is a testcases directory, with three groups of files inside: (1) a group of .html files which will each serve as input, (2) a group of .txt files which each contain the expected standard output of running myhtml2txt against the respective input file, and (3) a group of .error_lines files which will each serve as a newline-separated list of line numbers that your program should print to standard out, upon error. For example, html_entities.html is an example input file, and html_entities.txt is the sibling expected output file, and html_entities.error_lines is the list of lines with errors.

As myhtml2txt is run against each input file, the output is compared to the respective expected output file. If the outputs match, you get a fun, green dot. If not, you get a big red F, and a diff at the end, comparing the expected and real output.

Feel free to add your own input and expected output files, and they will be automatically run by the harness.

Error Line Numbers

How were line tests/\*.error_lines files generated? I took Debray's reference implementation and scraped the stderr for numbers:

../html2txt-2/myhtml2txt < tests/foo.html 2>&1 >/dev/null |sed 's/^\([0-9]\+\).*/\1/;s/.*[^0-9]\([0-9]\+\).*/\1/' > tests/foo.error_lines


To contribute a test back to this repository, make sure to generate the expected output file by running the input file through Debray's provided myhtml2txt, and send me a pull request. I have a recording of adding a new test here.

To contribute to the harness, make sure to test whatever first.
