Running the Test Suite

To run the entire test suite, after installation open a shell and use the following commands:

cd <archive_directory_path>/test

You should see a long line of periods, one for each test, and then a summary like this:

Ran 518 tests in 24.653s

Elapsed time: 26.189 seconds

The number of tests will grow over time, and the times reported will depend on the computer running the tests. The difference between the two times represents the time required to set up the tests (import modules, create data structures, etc.).

If any of the tests fail, please open a bug report or send email. Please include all relevant output, information about your operating system, Python version, and Docutils version. To see the Docutils version, use these commands:

cd ../tools
./ --version
