pas2ut man page

pas2ut — The Free Pascal unit to unit test case conversion tool.

Synopsis

pas2ut [options] inputfile [outputfile]

Description

pas2ut Scans the input file for classes and routines, and creates a testcase for all classes and routines found in the interface section of the file. It can generate a unit or an include file. All tests are created with a standard fail message. By default, only tests for public, published and default visibility members of classes are generated.

Usage

pas2ut takes the following options at this time:

--defaultclasstest=list
Specify a comma-separated list of default tests for each class. The elements in the list must be valid pascal identifiers.
--failmessage=Msg
Set the message for the Fail() statement inside each test method.
--limit=list
Specify a comma-separated list of global identifiers for which to generate tests. By default, tests are generated for all global identifiers in the interface section of a unit.
--prefix=name
Set the prefix for the test names (default is Test ). A test is named after the identifier it tests, with this prefix.
--singletestclass
Use a single test class for each class found. The default is to create a testcase class per class in the input unit.
--skip-classes
Do not generate test code for classes, only for functions and procedures.
--skip-declaration
Do not generate declarations for the tests, only implementations.
--skip-default
skip tests for default visibility members. By default, they are generated, together with Public or published members.
--skip-fail
Do not create fail() statements in test routine implementations.
--skip-fields
Do not generate testcases for fields of classes (only for methods and properties).
--skip-functions
Do not generate tests for functions/procedures, only for classes.
--skip-implementation
Do not generate (empty) implementation for the tests, only a class declaration is generated. (it can be completed in an IDE such as Lazarus or MSIDE)
--skip-methods
Do not generate tests for methods of classes, only for fields and properties.
--skip-properties
Do not generate tests for properties of classes, only for fields and methods.
--skip-property-default
Do not generate a default test for each property.
--skip-public
Skip tests for public members, only protected members will be tested if --test-protected is in effect.
--skip-published
Do not generate tests for published members, only public and default members will be tested.
--skip-register
Do not generate RegisterTests statement.
--skip-setup
Do not override the TTestCase.Setup() method in the generated class.
--skip-teardown
Do not override the TTestCase.TearDown() method in the generated class.
--skip-unit
Do not generate a unit, just an include file.
--testparentname=name
Set the name of the parent class for generated test classes. The default is TTestCase this can be used to set another class name.
--test-property-bounds
Generate a GetBounds test for each property.
--test-property-maxlen
Generate a MaxLen test for each property.
--test-property-notify
Generate a Notify test for each property.
--test-property-required
Generate a Required test for each property.
--test-protected
Also generate tests for protected class members. By default, tests are only generated for public, published and default visibility members.
--testunitname=name
Set the name of the generated unit (default is taken from output file name)
--tiopf
Create tiopf tests (this is the same as specifying --default,--bounds,--required,--notify and --maxlen tests.)
--unittestclassname=name
Set the global unit test class name. To be used with --singletestclass. The --limit and --defaultclasstest may be specified multiple times.
