DH_AUTO_TEST(1) 			    Debhelper				  DH_AUTO_TEST(1)

NAME
       dh_auto_test - automatically runs a package's test suites

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_test [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_auto_test is a debhelper program that tries to automatically run a package's test
       suite. It does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the
       package uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a test or check target,
       then this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If the
       test suite fails, the command will exit nonzero. If there's no test suite, it will exit
       zero without doing anything.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages with a test suite. If it doesn't work,
       you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_test at all, and just run the test suite manually.

OPTIONS
       See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and
       control options.

       -- params
	   Pass params to the program that is run. These can be used to supplement or override
	   the any standard parameters that dh_auto_test passes.

NOTES
       If the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS environment variable contains nocheck, no tests will be
       performed.

SEE ALSO

       This program is a part of debhelper.
