Author: Kaarel Kaljurand
This document explains how to test APE including the various DRS translators that APE contains.
All the test scripts in this directory depend on a larger lexicon than included with APE. In order to download the required lexicon, first run
swipl -f none -g ensure_clex -t halt -s downloader.pl
To regression test APE, just run:
or if you want to download the latest regression testset first then run:
swipl -f none -g download_acetexts -t halt -s downloader.pl
A file with a timestamp containing the regression test results
along with APE's output is stored into the
In order to get a digest of the testrun, grep the file for regression tester messages, e.g.:
cat testruns/rtest_050601-1310.txt | grep "^0"
or cat an already filtered file:
In order to explore the erronous DRSes, open the file and search for the strings
0000(Correctly generated an empty DRS)
----(Correctly generated a DRS which is not empty)
####(DRSs which are not empty do not match.)
To get a listing of all the regressions:
cat tmp/now.txt | grep "\[.*#.*\]"
Note: the regression testing is only tested with SWI-Prolog.
It is assumed that SWI-Prolog is called
if it is not the case then modify
or set a symbolic link, e.g.:
ln -s `which pl` swipl
Runtime of the complete test run on different machines:
Running the test:
echo "[test_drace]. test_drace(core)." | swipl > testruns/drace_test_results.txt echo "[test_drace]. test_drace(np)." | swipl > testruns/dracenp_test_results.txt
Getting an overview of the problems by filtering out certain testcases that point to pseudo-problems.
cat testruns/drace_test_results.txt | grep "FAIL" | grep -v ":" | grep -v "ach of" | wc
time bash test_everything.sh > out.txt 2> err.txt
This takes about
