QuickCheck: Automatic testing of Haskell programs

[ bsd3, library, testing ] [ Propose Tags ]

QuickCheck is a library for random testing of program properties.

The programmer provides a specification of the program, in the form of properties which functions should satisfy, and QuickCheck then tests that the properties hold in a large number of randomly generated cases.

Specifications are expressed in Haskell, using combinators defined in the QuickCheck library. QuickCheck provides combinators to define properties, observe the distribution of test data, and define test data generators.

You can find a (slightly out-of-date but useful) manual at http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~rjmh/QuickCheck/manual.html.

Readme for QuickCheck-2.9

[back to package description]
This is QuickCheck 2, a library for random testing of program properties.

Install it in the usual way:

$ cabal install

Please report bugs to the QuickCheck mailing list at
quickcheck@projects.haskell.org.

If you get errors about Template Haskell, try

$ cabal install -f-templateHaskell

but please report this as a bug.
