testsuite script, as well as all generated debugging
scripts, accept the following options.
- This option inhibits normal execution of the script, and merely gives a
summary of available options instead.
- This option inhibits normal execution of the script, and gives the package
name and version numbers to be tested.
- This option is only meaningful for the full testsuite, it is not really
useful for generated debugging scripts. If any test fails in the suite,
immediately abort testing and inhibit normal clean up. The default action
is to clean up and proceed with the following tests, as the usual goal of
the whole validation suite is to produce result counts and debugging scripts.
- For checking the contents of standard output and standard error output, their
contents are normally redirected into special files named `stdout'
and `stderr'. This option prevents the redirection to occur, so
standard error output and standard error output appear normally.
This option causes any testing of the contents of standard output or
standard error output to be bypassed.
- When the full test suite is generating debugging scripts, or when the
generated debugging scripts get executed, many informative details are given
about what is being done. This option inhibits those informative details.
- This option is only meaningful for the full testsuite, as it is automatically
selected in the generated debugging scripts (unless option `-s' is
also used). It has the purpose of forcing more verbosity in the detailed
output of what is being done.
- This option is transmitted to the shell at appropriate places, and asks for
a trace of command execution. This option also implies option `-n'.
