3 Automated Testing of Perl5 Interpreter for NetWare.
7 A set of Standard Unit Test Scripts to test all the functionalities of
8 Perl5 Interpreter are available along with the CPAN download. They are
9 all located under 't' folder. These include sub-folders under 't' such
10 as: 'base', 'cmd', 'comp', 'io', lib', 'op', 'pod', 'pragma' and 'run'.
11 Each of these sub-folders contain few test scripts ('.t' files) under
14 Executing these test scripts on NetWare can be automated as per the
17 1. Generate automated scripts like 'base.pl', 'cmd.pl', 'comp.pl', 'io.pl',
18 'lib.pl', 'op.pl', 'pod.pl', 'pragma.pl', 'run.pl' that execute all the
19 test scripts ('.t' files) under the corresponding folder.
21 For example, 'base.pl' to test all the scripts
22 under 'sys:\perl\scripts\t\base' folder,
23 'comp.pl' to test all the scripts
24 under 'sys:\perl\scripts\t\comp' folder and so on.
26 2. Generate an automated script, 'nwauto.pl' that executes all the above
27 mentioned '.pl' automated scripts, thus in turn executing all the '.t'
30 The script, 'NWScripts.pl' available under the 'NetWare\t' folder of the
31 CPAN download, is written to generate these automated scripts when
32 executed on a NetWare server. It generates 'base.pl', 'cmd.pl', 'comp.pl',
33 'io.pl', 'lib.pl', 'op.pl', 'pod.pl', 'pragma.pl', 'run.pl' and also
34 'nwauto.pl' by including all the corresponding '.t' scripts in them in
35 backtick operators.
37 For example, all the scripts that are under 't\base' folder will be
38 entered in 'base.pl' and so on. 'nwauto.pl' includes all these '.pl'
39 scripts like 'base.pl', 'comp.pl' etc.
42 Perform the following steps to execute the automated scripts:
44 1. Map your NetWare server to "i:"
46 2. After complete build (building both interpreter and all extensions)
47 of Perl for NetWare, execute "nmake nwinstall" in the 'NetWare' folder
48 of the CPAN download. This installs all the library files, perl modules,
49 the '.pl' files under 'NetWare\t' folder and all the '.t' scripts
50 under 't' folder, all in appropriate folders onto your server.
52 3. Execute the command "perl t\NWModify.pl" on the console command
53 prompt of your server. This script replaces
55 "@INC = " with "unshift @INC, " and
56 "push @INC, " with "unshift @INC, "
58 from all the scripts under 'sys:\perl\scripts\t' folder.
60 This is done to include the correct path for libraries into the scripts
61 when executed on NetWare. If this is not done, some of the scripts will
62 not get executed since they cannot locate the corresponding libraries.
64 4. Execute the command "perl t\NWScripts.pl" on the console command
65 prompt to generate the automated scripts mentioned above
66 under the 'sys:\perl\scripts\t' folder.
68 5. Execute the command "perl t\nwauto.pl" on the server console command
69 prompt. This runs all the standard test scripts. If you desire to
70 redirect or save the results into a file, say 'nwauto.txt', then the
71 console command to execute is: "perl t\nwauto.pl > nwauto.txt".
73 6. If you wish to execute only a certain set of scripts, then run the
74 corresponding '.pl' file. For example, if you wish to execute only the
75 'lib' scripts, then execute 'lib.pl' through the server console command,
76 "perl t\lib.pl'. To redirect the results into a file, the console command
77 is, "perl t\lib.pl > lib.txt".
81 Known Issues:
83 The following scripts are commented out in the corresponding autoscript:
85 1. 'openpid.t' in 'sys:\perl\scripts\t\io.pl' script
87 This either hangs or abends the server when executing through auto
88 scripts. When run individually, the script execution goes through
91 2. 'argv.t' in 'sys:\perl\scripts\t\io.pl' script
93 This either hangs or abends the server when executing through auto
94 scripts. When run individually, the script execution goes through
97 3. 'filehandle.t' in 'sys:\perl\scripts\t\lib.pl' script
99 This hangs in the last test case where it uses FileHandle::Pipe
100 whether run individually or through an auto script.
