Re^12: Self Testing Modulesby BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Dec 20, 2005 at 20:38 UTC||Need Help??|
I built a patch for a couple of modules and found myself having to go through and renumber all the testcases after the position I inserted my test.
More recently I tried to track down the source of a failure reported as "Hmmm. Looks like test 27 failed", or similar and found myself having to plod through the test file counting manually to work out which was test 27. Less than easy as the were a lot of tests commented out.
Either way, a line number of the failing testcase, and a traceback to the point of failure would be a lot more useful.
