SPP - regtest - an STScI legacy system for IRAF packages¶
regtest tests IRAF tasks. It is derived from a legacy system,
and is still in use at STScI. It is so specialized that it is
unlikely to be useful to you.
Each test exists in a separate XML file. The file format is defined in the Pandokia source code in stsci_regtest/TEST_FORMAT.xml
regtest automatically generates the data needed to make okifiable tests.
This runner uses PyRAF to execute IRAF tasks. Before executing the tasks under test, it loads these IRAF packages:
fitsio images stsdas tables
In the test definition, it lists one or more output files. Each output file is compared to a reference file. If all match (within the parameters of the comparison), the test passes.
