       shunit2 - A unit test framework for shell scripts


       shunit2 unitfile


       shUnit2 is a xUnit unit test framework for Bourne based shell scripts, and it is designed
       to work in a similar manner to JUnit, PyUnit, etc.. If you have ever had the desire to
       write a unit test for a shell script, shUnit2 can do the job.

       You can either run shunit2 directly from the commandline and specify the unit file or
       directly source the shunit2 executable.

       If you directly execute shunit2 and don’t specify a unitfile shunit2 assumes a empty
       testfile and will return without an error message.


       Simple script to test if 1 equals 1

           #! /bin/sh
             assertEquals 1 1

           # load shunit2
           . shunit2

       Execute shUnit2 unit tests directly from the commandline

           shunit2 /path/to/unit/file


       shunit2 does not support any commandline options at all. You can either source shunit2 to
       execute your unit tests or directly run shunit2 as a commandline script.


       For more information see or have a look at the installed
       documentation in /usr/share/doc/shunit2/
