NAME

       augparse - execute an Augeas module

SYNOPSIS

       augparse [OPTIONS] MODULE

DESCRIPTION

       Execute an Augeas module, most commonly to evaluate the tests it contains.

OPTIONS

       -I DIR
           Add DIR to the module loadpath. Can be given multiple times. The directories set here
           are searched before any directories specified in the AUGEAS_LENS_LIB environment
           variable, and before the default directory /usr/share/augeas/lenses.

       --nostdinc
           Do not search any of the default directories for modules. When this option is set,
           only directories specified explicitly with -I or specified in AUGEAS_LENS_LIB will be
           searched for modules.

       --notypecheck
           Do not perform lens type checks. Only use this option during lens development and make
           sure you typecheck lenses when you are done developing - you should never use a lens
           that hasn't been typechecked. This option is sometimes useful when you are working on
           unit tests for a lens to speed up the time it takes to repeatedly run and fix tests.

       --version
           Print version information and exit.

       -h  Display this help and exit

EXAMPLES

       To run the tests in lenses/tests/test_foo.aug and use modules from the directory lenses,
       run

           augparse -I lenses lenses/tests/test_foo.aug

TESTS

       Tests can appear as top-level forms anywhere in a module. Generally, the tests for a
       module lenses/foo.aug are kept in a separate file, usually in lenses/tests/test_foo.aug.

       There are two different kinds of tests that Augeas can run: get and put tests. The syntax
       for get tests is

           test LENS get STRING = RESULT

       which applies the get direction of the lens LENS to STRING and compares it with the given
       RESULT. RESULT can either be a tree literal, the symbol ? to print the result of applying
       LENS to STRING, or the symbol * to indicate that the test should produce an exception.

       The syntax for put tests is

           test LENS put STRING after COMMANDS = RESULT

       which first applies the get direction of the lens LENS to STRING, then applies the given
       COMMANDS to the resulting tree, and finally transforms the modified tree back to a string
       using the put direction of LENS. The resulting string is then compared to RESULT, which
       can be a string, the symbol ? to print the result of applying LENS to STRING, or the
       symbol * to indicate that the test should produce an exception.
