NAME
       runtest - the DejaGnu test driver program

SYNOPSIS
       runtest [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       --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.

       --debug
	      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
	      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.

       -D[number]
	      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...
       special.exp.

       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-
       tion.

EXIT CODES
       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.
