       ct_property_test - EXPERIMENTAL support in Common Test for calling
           property-based tests.


       EXPERIMENTAL support in Common Test for calling property-based tests.

       This  module  is  a first step to run property-based tests in the Common Test framework. A
       property testing tool like QuickCheck or PropEr is assumed to be installed.

       The idea is to have a Common Test test suite calling a property testing tool with  special
       property  test  suites  as  defined  by  that tool. The usual Erlang application directory
       structure is assumed. The tests are collected in the test directory  of  the  application.
       The  test  directory  has  a  subdirectory  property_test, where everything needed for the
       property tests is collected.

       A typical Common Test test suite using ct_property_test is organized as follows:


        all() -> [prop_ftp_case].

        init_per_suite(Config) ->

        %%%---- test case
        prop_ftp_case(Config) ->

       This is experimental code that can be changed or removed anytime without any warning.


       init_per_suite(Config) -> Config | {skip, Reason}

              Initializes Config for property testing.

              This function investigates if support is available for either  Quickcheck,  PropEr,
              or  Triq.  The options {property_dir,AbsPath} and {property_test_tool,Tool} are set
              in the Config returned.

              The function is intended to be called in function init_per_suite in the test suite.

              The property tests are assumed to be in subdirectory property_test.

       quickcheck(Property, Config) -> true | {fail, Reason}

              Calls quickcheck and returns the result in a form suitable for Common Test.

              This function is intended to be called in the test cases in the test suite.
