plunit.pl -- Unit Testing
PublicShow source

Unit testing environment for SWI-Prolog and SICStus Prolog. For usage, please visit https://www.swi-prolog.org/pldoc/package/plunit.

Source set_test_options(+Options)
Specifies how to deal with test suites. Defined options are:
load(+Load)
Whether or not the tests must be loaded. Values are never, always, normal (only if not optimised)
run(+When)
When the tests are run. Values are manual, make or make(all).
format(+Mode)
Currently one of tty or log. tty uses terminal control to overwrite successful tests, allowing the user to see the currently running tests and output from failed tests. This is the default of the output is a tty. log prints a full log of the executed tests and their result and is intended for non-interactive usage.
output(+When)
If always, emit all output as it is produced, if never, suppress all output and if on_failure, emit the output if the test fails.
occurs_check(+Mode)
Defines the default for the occurs_check flag during testing.
cleanup(+Bool)
If true (default =false), cleanup report at the end of run_tests/1. Used to improve cooperation with memory debuggers such as dmalloc.
concurrent(+Bool)
If true (default false), run all tests in a unit concurrently.
jobs(Num)
Number of jobs to use for concurrent testing. Defaults to the number of cores.
timeout(+Seconds)
Set timeout for each individual test. This acts as a default that may be overuled at the level of units or individual tests.
Source begin_tests(+UnitName:atom) is det
Source begin_tests(+UnitName:atom, Options) is det
Start a test-unit. UnitName is the name of the test set. the unit is ended by :- end_tests(UnitName).
Source end_tests(+Name) is det
Close a unit-test module.
To be done
- Run tests/clean module?
- End of file?
Source run_tests is semidet
Source run_tests(+TestSet) is semidet
Source run_tests(+TestSet, +Options) is semidet
Run tests and report about the results. The predicate run_tests/0 runs all known tests that are not blocked. The predicate run_tests/1 takes a specification of tests to run.

The predicate run_tests/2 is synchronized. Concurrent testing may be achieved using the relevant options. See set_test_options/1. Options are passed to set_test_options/1. In addition the following options are processed:

summary(-Summary)
Unify Summary do a dict holding the keys below. The value of these keys is an integer describing the number of tests. If this option is given, run_tests/2 does not fail if some tests failed.
  • total
  • passed
  • failed
  • timeout
  • blocked
Arguments:
TestSet- is either a single specification or a list of specifications. Each single specification is either the name of a test-unit or a term <test-unit>:<test>, denoting a single test within a unit. If TestSet is all, all known tests are executed.
Source running_tests is det
Print the currently running test.
Source current_test(?Unit, ?Test, ?Line, ?Body, ?Options) is nondet
True when a test with the specified properties is loaded.
Source current_test_unit(?Unit, ?Options) is nondet
True when a Unit is a current unit test declared with Options.
Source test_report(+What) is det
Produce reports on test results after the run. Currently only supports fixme for What.
Source load_test_files(+Options) is det
Load .plt test-files related to loaded source-files.
Source user:message_hook(+Severity, +Message, +Lines) is semidet[multifile]
Redefine printing some messages. It appears SICStus has no way to get multiple messages at the same line, so we roll our own. As there is a lot pre-wired and checked in the SICStus message handling we cannot reuse the lines. Unless I miss something ...
