       clitest - performs automatic testing in command lines


       clitest [options] <file ...>


       Clitest  is  a portable POSIX shell script that performs automatic testing in Unix command
       lines. This script was carefully coded to be portable between POSIX shells

       It's the same concept as in Python's doctest module: you document both  the  commands  and
       their  expected  output,  using  the familiar interactive prompt format, and a specialized
       tool tests them.

       The clitest command searches for pieces of text that look like  interactive  Unix  command
       lines, and then executes those command lines to verify that they work exactly as shown.
