= Ruby DocTest Official repository: * http://github.com/tablatom/rubydoctest Wiki documentation: * http://github.com/tablatom/rubydoctest/wikis == Description: Ruby version of Python's doctest tool, but a bit different. Ruby DocTest allows you to: 1. Write tests in irb format and keep them as comments next to your Ruby code. 2. Write markdown documents with irb format tests embedded in them. == Synopsis: rubydoctest comes as an executable that takes a list of files: rubydoctest lib/*.rb rubydoctest simple.doctest == Examples: Here is how you might use RubyDocTest within a ruby source file (say called five.rb): # doctest: Add 5 and 5 to get 10 # >> five_and_five # => 10 def five_and_five 5 + 5 end Here is an example doctest file (say called simple.doctest): # Simple test of RubyDocTest This is an example test >> 1 + 2 => 3 And here's a test that will fail >> 1 + 2 => 4 See the doc directory of this project for more .doctest examples and documentation. == Installation: Major releases: sudo gem install rubydoctest Build from source: git clone git://github.com/tablatom/rubydoctest.git cd rubydoctest rake manifest:refresh && rake install == Testing DocTest: Ruby DocTest uses itself to test and document itself. rake test:doctest In development of Ruby DocTest, there is an autotest system in-built using script/rstakeout rake test:doctest:auto == TextMate Bundle: See http://github.com/drnic/ruby-doctest-tmbundle == License: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2008 Tom Locke, Nic Williams, Duane Johnson Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
