Summary: Framework for Running Test Suites on Software Tools
DejaGnu is a framework for testing other programs.  Its purpose is to
provide a single front-end for all tests.  Beyond this, DejaGnu offers
several advantages for testing:

1. The flexibility and consistency of the DejaGnu framework make it
   easy to write tests for any program.

1. DejaGnu provides a layer of abstraction that allows you to write
   tests that are portable to any host or target where a program
   must be tested.  For instance, a test for GDB can run (from any
   Unix-based host) on any target architecture that DejaGnu

1. All tests have the same output format.  This makes it easy to
   integrate testing into other software development processes.
   DejaGnu's output is designed to be parsed by other filtering
   scripts and it is also human-readable.

DejaGnu is written in expect, which in turn uses "Tcl"--Tool command

Running tests requires two things: the testing framework and the test
suites themselves.






* Wed Jun 30 2021 Andreas Schwab <>
  - testsuite-legacy.patch: support deprecated legacy uses of dejagnu
* Mon Jun 21 2021 Andreas Schwab <>
  - Update to dejagnu 1.6.3
    * The internal proc 'is_remote' has been renamed to 'isremote' for
      consistency with the other similar procs (eg, istarget)
    * runtest now accepts --local_init and --global_init options to override
      the default of reading "site.exp"
    * runtest now responds consistently to all Tcl errors and generates an
      UNRESOLVED result when a test script aborts
    * runtest now collects Tcl errors encountered during a test run and prints
      the collected errors a second time at the end of the test run after the
    * A utility procedure relative_filename has been added
    * The utility procedure 'grep' now accepts a '-n' option that
      includes line numbers in the output, consistent with GNU grep
    * The target_compile procedure now accepts a "linker=" option that
      overrides the compiler selection when producing an executable
    * The internal default_target_compile procedure now supports compiling
      sources in Go (using GCC Go) and Rust
    * The host_execute procedure no longer insists that the executable be in
      the current directory if the file exists under the given name
    * The host_execute procedure now reads input to end-of-file
    * The match patterns in the host_execute procedure have been revised to
      fix timing issues causing test names to be truncated
    * The host_execute procedure is no longer sensitive to the value of the
      "text" global variable
    * A new multiplex procedure "testsuite" is added for commands retrieving
      or providing information about the current testsuite
    * A command "testsuite file" is added to replace the use of the "*dir"
      variables in test scripts
    * A command "testsuite can call" is added to report the availability of
      multiplexed API calls
    * A new multiplex procedure "testcase" is added for commands examining or
      manipulating the dynamic state of ongoing testing
    * A command "testcase group" is provided for reporting test groups to the
      DejaGnu core
    * A shell command "dejagnu" is added as a place to hang various
      auxiliary commands not directly involved with running tests
    * The first auxiliary command is added: "report card"
    * A Tcl namespace is now used for some internal procedures and variables.
    * The Tcl namespace ::dejagnu and all child namespaces are entirely
      internal and should not be mentioned in testsuite code
    * The DejaGnu testsuite no longer searches for a nearby Expect executable
      in the location where it would have been located in the old Cygnus tree
* Wed Nov 28 2018
  - Update to dejagnu 1.6.2
    * runtest will abort if $DEJAGNU is defined but the file is not
  - close-wait-program.patch: Removed
* Tue Jul 31 2018
  - Adjust license
* Tue Jul 17 2018
  - close-wait-program.patch: Use separate kill command for each pid
  - Use %license.
* Tue Oct 17 2017
  - Update to 1.6.1
    * Minor bug fixes, no major changes
* Sat Apr 16 2016
  - Update to 1.6
    * Proper support for target communication via SSH has been added.
    * A large number of very old config and baseboard files have been
      removed.  If you need to resurrect these, you can get them from
      version 1.5.3.  If you can show that a board is still in use,
      it can be put back in the distribution.
    * The --status command line option is now the default. This means
      that any error in the testsuite Tcl scripts will cause runtest
      to abort with exit status code 2.  The --status option has been
      removed from the documentation, but will continue to be
      accepted for backward compatibility.
    * runtest now exits with exit code 0 if the testsuite "passed",
      1 if something unexpected happened (eg, FAIL, XPASS or
      UNRESOLVED), and 2 if an exception is raised by the Tcl
    * runtest now exits with the standard exit codes of programs that
      are terminated by the SIGINT, SIGTERM and SIGQUIT signals.
    * The user-visible utility procedures `absolute', `psource' and
      `slay' have been removed.  If a testsuite uses any of these
      procedures, a copy of the procedure should be made and placed
      in the lib directory of the testsuite.
    * Support was added for testing the D compiler.
    * ~/.dejagnurc is now loaded last, not first. This allows the
      user to have the ability to override anything in their
      environment (even the site.exp file specified by $DEJAGNU).
    * The user-visible utility procedure `unsetenv' is deprecated
      and will be removed in the next release.  If a testsuite uses
      any of these procedures, a copy of the procedure should be made
      and placed in the lib directory of the testsuite.
