dh_octave_check - automatically run an Octave-Forge package test suite
dh_octave_check performs the automated tests present in both *.m and C++ files in the sub- directories of the current directory, which should be the top-level source directory of an Octave add-on package. It also runs the script debian/check.m, if it exists.
Some aspects of the execution of dh_octave_check can be controlled through the environment variables listed below. These variables can also be set in file "debian/checkvars", which is sourced by dh_octave_check. DH_OCTAVE_EXCLUDE_TEST A space-separated list with the the names of the files whose unit tests should not be run. DH_OCTAVE_TEST_OPT The optional second argument for Octave’s test function. Allowed values are "quiet", "normal", and "verbose". DH_OCTAVE_TEST_ENV Prefix for calling the Octave command. It can be used for setting environment variables to Sensible values (for instance "LD_PRELOAD=") and specifying another program under which Octave must be run (like "xvfb-run"). octave Name of the Octave binary to run (defaults to "octave-cli"). octave_options Command line options for Octave (defaults to "--no-history --silent --no-init-file --no-window-system").
debhelper(7), dh(1), dh_octave_substvar(1), dh_octave_clean(1), dh_octave_version(1), dh_octave_changelogs(1), dh_octave_examples(1) This program is meant to be used together with debhelper for Debian packages derived from Octave-Forge packages. It is recommended to enable it by adding the dh-sequence-octave virtual package to Build-Depends, Build-Depends-Arch or Build-Depends-Indep. This is equivalent to adding dh-octave to the same field and adding --with=octave to the dh sequencer in debian/rules, except that only -arch/-indep/profiled builds are affected. This is also slightly more simple in the most common case.
