./devel/go-check, Rich testing for the Go language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1nb9, Package name: go-check-1nb9, Maintainer: rillig

The check package builds on the standard testing library from Go to offer
a richer testing framework for libraries and applications to use.

gocheck includes features such as:
* Helpful error reporting to aid on figuring problems out (see below)
* Richer test helpers: assertions which interrupt the test immediately,
deep multi-type comparisons, string matching, etc
* Suite-based grouping of tests
* Fixtures: per suite and/or per test set up and tear down
* Benchmarks integrated in the suite logic (with fixtures, etc)
* Management of temporary directories
* Panic-catching logic, with proper error reporting
* Proper counting of successes, failures, panics, missed tests, skips, etc
* Explicit test skipping
* Support for expected failures
* Verbosity flag which disables output caching (helpful to debug hanging
tests, for instance)
* Multi-line string reporting for more comprehensible failures
* Inclusion of comments surrounding checks on failure reports
* Fully tested (it manages to test itself reliably)

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.
