       runtest [ options ]


       DejaGnu  is  a  framework  for  running test suites on GNU
       tools. It is written in expect, which uses TCL (Tool  com­
       mand  language).   runtest is the test driver program; use
       it to control what tests to run, and variations on how  to
       run them.

       You  can  find  a comprehensive description of DejaGnu and
       runtest in The DejaGnu Testing Framework or its Info  ver­
       sion, dejagnu.info.


       --all  Print  all  test output to screen. By default, only
              unexpected results are displayed.

       --baud rate
              Set the baud rate for  a  serial  line  connection.
              Some serial interface programs (like tip) don't use
              this value but instead use a  separate  initializa­
              tion file.

       --connect type
              The  type  of  connection  to use.  The choices are
              rlogin, telnet, rsh, kermit, tip and mondfe.

              Turn on expect internal debugging output. All  out­
              put is logged to a file called dbg.out.  The output
              of the --strace also goes into this file.

       --help Prints out a help screen and then exits.

       --host type
              The configuration string for the host.

       --ignore test1.exp test2.exp ...
              Do not run the specified tests.

       --mail ´name1 name2 ...´
              Electronic mail addresses to receive test  results.

       --name hostname
              The network hostname of the target board.

       --objdir path
              path  is a directory containing compiled test code.

       --outdir directory
              The name of a directory for test log output.

       --tool toolname
              Specify the tool to be tested.   toolname  controls
              the test suite applied, and the associated initial­
              ization module.

       --verbose, -v
              Turns on more debugging output from test cases  and
              DejaGnu  utility  code.   Use  more  than  once  to
              increase output further.

       --version, -V
              Prints out the versions of DejaGnu, expect and Tcl.

              Activate the Tcl debugger.number can be either 1 or
              0. If it is 1, then the  expect  shell  will  break
              when  it  starts to run. All ^C's drop DejaGnu back
              to the debugger prompt. A  0  starts  DejaGnu  like
              normal, but a ^C drops to the debugger prompt.

       Any  file name on the command line is assumed to be a sub­
       of  the test names to run.  Usually these are the names of
       the expect test driver, ie... special.exp.

       Makefile style variables are used to  specify  tool  names
       and  their  flags; these and other configuration dependent
       values are saved in the file site.exp, created during con­


       runtest  sets  the  exit  code  to  1  if any of the tests
       failed, or sets it to 0 if all the tests passed.
