My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
Oh my! I almost forgot the most important part in 'Beginning Ruby' - how to test your code!

require 'test/unit'
class MyTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
    def test_hookup
       assert(2==2)
    end
end

Running that in SciTE gives the following output:

Loaded suite rubyunittest
Started
.
Finished in 0.0 seconds.

1 tests, 1 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors

On the other hand, if you change one of those twos in the assert() to a three, it shows this:

Loaded suite rubyunittest
Started
F
Finished in 0.079 seconds.

1) Failure:
test_hookup(MyTest) [rubyunittest.rb:4]:
<false> is not true.

1 tests, 1 assertions, 1 failures, 0 errors

The Ruby plugin for Eclipse gives a nice little GUI, however, where you can see the green bar (assuming your code passes all the tests). I also have a classmate who is writing a Ruby unit testing framework based on NUnit for his thesis, so it is supposed to be the bollocks. I'll let you all know more when I know more.

Hey! Why don't you make your life easier and subscribe to the full post or short blurb RSS feed? I'm so confident you'll love my smelly pasta plate wisdom that I'm offering a no-strings-attached, lifetime money back guarantee!
