Classes

class TestSuite
A command-line program that runs a set of tests; this is primarily for making test modules conveniently executable.

Methods

__init__(self, attrs)
addTests(self, packages)
generateUsage(self)
parseCommandLine(self)
Parse the test script's command line, taken from the 'script_args' instance attribute (which defaults to 'sys.argv[1:]'). This is first processed for options that set attributes of the TestSuite instance. Then, it is scanned for test arguments.
