       aesubunit - run SubUnit tests

       The aesubunit command is used to invoke tests via the http://‐ unit testing interface.

       The shape of the external unittest should not need to be known a-
       priori.  After the test has run, tests should still exist as discrete
       objects, so that anything taking a reference to them doesn’t get 50
       copies of the same object.

       The aesubunit command may be used to replace the test_command or
       batch_test_command fields of the project configuration file.

   Control Protocol
       The results of the test are obtained by examining the standard output
       of the tests as they run.  The text is meant to be human readable, so
       that tests may run stand-alone.

       Tests should ideally print a header of the form
              test: test label
              testing: test label
       A successful test will produce lines of the form
              successful test label
              successful: test label
       A test failure will produce text of the form
              failure test label failure: test label failure test label [ ]
              failure: test label [ ]
       The square brackets indicate text which may describe the test in more
       detail.  It will be printed on the standartd output by the aesubunit

       A test which produces no result (neither succes nor failure) uses the
       following forms
              error: test label error: test label [ ]
       In general, unexpected output from the test will be sent through to the
       aesubunit standard output.

       If a subunit test terminates with an exit status other than zero, this
       is taken to be a no result indication for that test.


       The following options are understood:

       -Batch  This option may be useed to specify that a batch test should be
               performed, and produce results in the appropriate form.

       -Change number
               This option may be used to specify a particular change within a
               project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this

       -Project name
               This option may be used to select the project of interest.
               When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT
               environment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist, the
               user’s $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
               field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not
               exist, when the user is only working on changes within a single
               project, the project name defaults to that project.  Otherwise,
               it is an error.

               This option may be used to obtain more information about how to
               use the aesubunit program.

       See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

       All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
       upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
       optional.  You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

       All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
       lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

       For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all
       interpreted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not
       be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not

       Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
       the command line, after the function selectors.

       The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
       aesubunit are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’.  The
       "--option=value" convention is also understood.


       The aesubunit command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The
       aesubunit command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no


       See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this
       command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file’s project_
       specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands
       executed by Aegis.
