This package provides a function that extends tasty testing framework with capability to test whether an external program runs successfully. This package is inspired by test-framework-program package by Adam Wick.
tasty-program provides basic functionality of running a program with specified set of command line parameters, and optionally a working directory, and checking the exit code. Program's output and error streams are ignored.
You can download latest stable release from Hackage
foo.hs source file:
module Foo where foo :: Int foo = 5
you can test whether GHC can compile it:
module Main ( main ) where import Test.Tasty import Test.Tasty.Program main :: IO () main = defaultMain $ testGroup "Compilation with GHC" $ [ testProgram "Foo" "ghc" ["-fforce-recomp", "foo.hs"] Nothing ]
