HTF-0.3: The Haskell Test Framework



A black box test in the terminology of the HTF consists of a driver program that is run in various input files. For each input file, the HTF checks that the driver program exits with the correct exit code and that it produces the expected output.



type Diff = Maybe FilePath -> String -> IO (Maybe String)Source

The type of a function comparing the content of a file against a string, similar to the unix tool diff. The first parameter is the name of the file containing the expected output. If this parameter is Nothing, then no output is expected. The second parameter is the actual output produced. If the result is Nothing then no difference was found. Otherwise, a Just value contains a string explaining the different.
