README.Testing - Explains structure and use of /Testing
The purpose of Testing directory is to provide test scripts to test the correct functionality of the programs provided with this distribution. The test scripts can be run to make sure that package is installed properly and all required system paths are set. This also helps us to test backward compatibility of programs when programs are upgraded.
Testing/ contains various sub directories, each of which tests individual program of this package.
Each subdirectory has various .sh test files written in C shell script. All tests that test behavior of a program under normal conditions are named as testA*sh, and all those that test error conditions are named as testB*.sh.
Note that in earlier versions the testA*.sh scripts were run by a script called normal-op.sh, and the testB*.sh scripts were run by a script called error-op.sh. However, this required that subtestll.sh and testall.sh (the main driver scripts for the Testing directory) be installed in the system level binary directory. We'd prefer to keep the Testing scripts and data isolated to the Testing directory, so we created a single script ot run all test cases, ALL-TESTS.sh
All test scripts in all the program directories can be run with a single command 'csh ./TEST-ALL.sh'. If you add or change test cases, this is the only place you will need to make modifications to add your test case to the sequence of test scripts.
If everything is fine, the tests will show the following:
STATUS : OK
If the package is not installed rightly or paths not set, Tests will show the following:
STATUS : ERROR
