DH_AUTO_TEST(1) Debhelper DH_AUTO_TEST(1)
dh_auto_test - automatically runs a package's test suites
dh_auto_test [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]
dh_auto_test is a debhelper program that tries to automatically run a
package's test suite. It does so by running the appropriate command for
the build system it detects the package uses. For example, if there's a
Makefile and it contains a test or check target, then this is done by
running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If the test
suite fails, the command will exit nonzero. If there's no test suite,
it will exit zero without doing anything.
This is intended to work for about 90% of packages with a test suite.
If it doesn't work, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_test at
all, and just run the test suite manually.
See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build
system selection and control options.
Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters that
dh_auto_test usually passes.
If the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS environment variable contains nocheck, no
tests will be performed.
This program is a part of debhelper.
