FL-RUN-TEST(1) Debian manual FL-RUN-TEST(1)


fl-run-test - runs a funkload test file


fl-run-test [ options ] file [ class.method | class | suite ]


A FunkLoad test can be used like a standard unittest using a unittest.main() and a 'python'.

Note that fl-run-test can be used to launch normal unittest.TestCase and (if you use python2.4) doctest in a plain text file or embedded in a python docstring. The --debug option makes doctests verbose.
