/*! \mainpage Check: a unit test framework for C

\section overview

Overview Check is a unit test framework for C. It features a simple
interface for defining unit tests, putting little in the way of the
developer. Tests are run in a separate address space, so Check can
catch both assertion failures and code errors that cause segmentation
faults or other signals. The output from unit tests can be used within
source code editors and IDEs.

\section quickref Quick Reference

\subsection creating Creating


Unit tests are created with the #START_TEST/#END_TEST macro pair. The
#fail_unless and #fail macros are used for creating checks within unit
tests; the #mark_point macro is useful for trapping the location of
signals and/or early exits.

\subsection managing Managing test cases and suites


Test cases are created with #tcase_create, unit tests are added
with #tcase_add_test


Suites are created with #suite_create, freed with #suite_free; test
cases are added with #suite_add_tcase

\subsection running Running suites


Suites are run through an SRunner, which is created with
#srunner_create, freed with #srunner_free. Additional suites can be
added to an SRunner with #srunner_add_suite.


Use #srunner_run_all to run a suite and print results.

A TCase represents a test case.  Create with #tcase_create, free with
#tcase_free.  For the moment, test cases can only be run through a

Add fixture setup/teardown functions to a test case Note that
setup/teardown functions are not run in a separate address space, like
test functions, and so must not exit or signal (e.g., segfault)

void tcase_set_fixture(TCase *tc, SFun setup, SFun teardown);

void tcase_fn_start (int msqid, const char *fname, const char *file, int line);

  One must use braces within a START_/END_ pair to declare new variables */
00145 #define START_TEST(testname__)\
static void testname__ (int msqid__)\
  tcase_fn_start (msqid__,""# testname__, __FILE__, __LINE__);

/*! End a unit test */
00151 #define END_TEST }

/*! Fail the test case unless result is true */
00155 #define fail_unless(result,msg) \
  if(fail_unless_(msqid__,result,__FILE__,__LINE__,msg)) return;
/*! Non macro version of #fail_unless, with more complicated interface */

              const char *msg);
