       runtest - the DejaGnu test driver program

       runtest [ options ]

       DejaGnu	is  a  framework  for  running test suites on GNU tools. It is written in expect,
       which uses TCL (Tool command language).	runtest is the test driver  program;  use  it  to
       control what tests to run, and variations on how to run them.

       You  can  find  a  comprehensive description of DejaGnu and runtest in The DejaGnu Testing
       Framework or its Info version, dejagnu.info.

       --all  Print all test output to screen. By default, only unexpected results are displayed.

       --baud rate
	      Set the baud rate for a serial line  connection.	Some  serial  interface  programs
	      (like tip) don't use this value but instead use a separate initialization file.

       --connect type
	      The  type  of  connection to use.  The choices are rlogin, telnet, rsh, kermit, tip
	      and mondfe.

	      Turn on expect internal debugging output. All output is logged  to  a  file  called
	      dbg.out.	The output of the --strace also goes into this file.

       --help Prints out a help screen and then exits.

       --host type
	      The configuration string for the host.

       --ignore test1.exp test2.exp ...
	      Do not run the specified tests.  Electronic mail addresses to receive test results.

       --name hostname
	      The network hostname of the target board.

       --objdir path
	      path is a directory containing compiled test code.

       --outdir directory
	      The name of a directory for test log output.

	      Reboot the target board when runtest initializes (if supported).

       --srcdir path
	      path is a directory containing test directories.

       --strace N
	      Turns on expect internal tracing to N levels deep.

       --target type
	      The configuration string for the target.

       --tool toolname
	      Specify  the  tool to be tested.	toolname controls the test suite applied, and the
	      associated initialization module.

       --verbose, -v
	      Turns on more debugging output from test cases and DejaGnu utility code.	Use  more
	      than once to increase output further.

       --version, -V
	      Prints out the versions of DejaGnu, expect and Tcl.

	      Activate	the Tcl debugger.number can be either 1 or 0. If it is 1, then the expect
	      shell will break when it starts to run. All ^C's drop DejaGnu back to the  debugger
	      prompt. A 0 starts DejaGnu like normal, but a ^C drops to the debugger prompt.

       Any file name on the command line is assumed to be a subset
       of  the	test  names to run.  Usually these are the names of the expect test driver, ie...

       Makefile style variables are used to specify tool names and their flags; these  and  other
       configuration  dependent  values are saved in the file site.exp, created during configura-

       runtest sets the exit code to 1 if any of the tests failed, or sets it to  0  if  all  the
       tests passed.

       The  DejaGnu  Testing Framework (dejagnu.info).	This is the DejaGnu manual; its source is
       the SGML files doc/*.sgml.  in the DejaGnu distribution.
