A number of compile-time and run-time tests can be automatically run in multiple configurations.
There are a few dependencies to execute the tests:
- C++11 capable compiler, preferably C++17 capable (c++1z is fine if it provides the symbol __cpp_noexcept_function_type)
- Cmake – a version in the interval [3.8, 4)
- Catch2 – any sub-version of v2 (now obtained automatically via CMake’s FetchContent module)
Instructions for running the tests
(For GNU/Linux, should be analogous in other systems.)
- Install cmake
- Clone and build this repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/ricab/scope_guard.git <guard_src_dir> $ mkdir <guard_bin_dir> $ cd <guard_bin_dir> $ cmake <guard_src_dir> $ make $ make test
To speed things up, the last two commands can be given a number of threads to execute in parallel. For instance:
make -j4 # only 4 compilations needed make test ARGS=-j16 # On an otherwise idle machine, I suggest 2x the # number of HW threads (to compensate for I/O)
This will run catch and compile-time tests with different combinations of
SG_REQUIRE_NOEXCEPT_IN_CPP17 and C++ standard, depending on compiler
capabilities. If the compiler supports exception specifications as part of the
both C++11 and C++17 standards are tested (cases X, Y, W, and Z in the table
below). Otherwise, only C++11 is tested (cases X and Y below). Notice that
noexcept is only effectively required in case Z.
Note: to obtain more output (e.g. because there was a failure), the command
make test can be replaced with
VERBOSE=1 make test_verbose. This shows the
command lines used in compilation tests, as well as detailed test output.
