kyua-tester-list — The test cases list printed by the Kyua testers
The ‘list’ subcommand of the various Kyua testers outputs the list of tests cases within a given test program. The format of the list of test cases is a Lua script in which every line invokes the test_case() function to define a test case. The kyua(1) runtime engine reads this list in order to determine what tests can be run.
The test_case() function takes a table as its only argument, and the table contains the definition of the metadata properties of the test case. A typical invocation of this function looks like this:
Where ‘...’ denote optional metadata values attached to the test case. The supported metadata properties are the following:
- Whitespace-separated list of machine architecture names allowed by the test case. If empty or not defined, the test case is allowed to run on any machine architecture.
- Whitespace-separated list of machine platform names allowed by the test case. If empty or not defined, the test case is allowed to run on any machine platform.
- Textual description of the test case.
- If ‘true’, denotes that the test case has a cleanup routine.
- Whitespace-separated list of configuration variables that the test case requires to be defined before it can run.
- Whitespace-separated list of paths that the test case requires to exist before it can run.
- Amount of physical memory that the test case needs to run successfully.
- Whitespace-separated list of basenames or absolute paths pointing to executable binaries that the test case requires to exist before it can run.
- If empty, the test case has no restrictions on the calling user for it to run. If set to ‘unprivileged’, the test case needs to not run as root. If set to ‘root’, the test case must run as root.
- Amount of seconds that the test case is allowed to execute before being killed.
- Custom variable defined by the test case, where ‘NAME’ denotes the name of the variable.
