The cURL Test Suite

stunnel (for HTTPS and FTPS tests)
'make test'. This invokes the '' perl script. Edit the top
variables of that script in case you have some specific needs.
The script breaks on the first test that doesn't do OK. Use -a to prevent
the script to abort on the first error. Run the script with -v for more
verbose output. Use -d to run the test servers with debug output enabled as
Use -s for shorter output, or pass test numbers to run specific tests only
(like "./ 3 4" to test 3 and 4 only). It also supports test case
ranges with 'to'. As in "./runtests 3 to 9" which runs the seven tests from
3 to 9.
The test script will check that all allocated memory is freed properly IF
curl has been built with the CURLDEBUG define set. The script will
automatically detect if that is the case, and it will use the ../memanalyze
script to analyze the memory debugging output.
If a test case fails, you can conveniently get the script to invoke the
debugger (gdb) for you with the server running and the exact same command
line parameters that failed. Just invoke ' <test number> -g' and
then just type 'run' in the debugger to perform the command through the
If a test case causes a core dump, analyze it by running gdb like:
# gdb ../curl/src core
... and get a stack trace with the gdb command:
(gdb) where
All logs are generated in the logs/ subdirctory (it is emtpied first
in the script). Use -k to make the temporary files
to be kept after the test run.
All test cases are put in the data/ subdirctory. Each test is stored in the
file named according to the test number.
The test case file format is simply a way to store different sections within
the same physical file. The different sections are to be described here
within shortly.
So far, I've used this system:
1 - 99 HTTP
100 - 199 FTP
200 - 299 FILE
300 - 399 HTTPS
400 - 499 FTPS
500 - 599 libcurl source code tests, not using the curl command tool
Since 30-apr-2003, there's nothing in the system that requires us to keep
within these number series. Each test case now specifies its own server
requirements, independent of test number.
* Add persistant connection support and test cases
