GNU Greg

Software testing framework

Greg is a software testing framework in which test cases can be written in Guile.

Its simplicity makes it easy to write tests for any program, but it was specifically written for use with GNUstep-Guile to permit direct testing of the GNUstep libraries without the necessity to run a separate driver program.

The core functionality of Greg is a Guile module which can be loaded into any software with an embedded Guile interpreter. Any program which uses Guile as it's scripting language can therefore use Greg to test itself directly. But testing external programs is also possible with the standard Guile `expect' module.

Greg provides most of the functionality of DejaGnu but is rather simpler.
