Samhain comes with
a suite of verification/regression tests located in the
test/ subdirectory of the source tree.
The driver script is
test/test.sh. Calling it
without arguments will provide some usage information. The
script should be called as:
test/test.sh [options] <test_number>
To get the list of possible tests, use:
The recognized options are as follows:
-q|--quiet No output; success/failure is reported vi exit status only.
-v|--verbose Report additional information.
-s|--stoponerr Stop when a test fails.
--no-cleanup Don't clean up generated test data (useful to investigate the reason for a failure).
--srcdir=... Tell the script the location of the source tree (not necessary if run from the top source directory).
--color=always|never|auto Whether to use colour for output. Default is 'auto' (no colour if stdout is not a terminal).
--really-all This option enable additional test that are not run usually (see below).
|The --really-all option|
This option enables the following additional tests:
The database tests (13/14) with --really-all will modify (i.e. log to) the database. These are the only tests that are not confined to the directory where the test is run.
