[Tags:library, mit, program]

An IO library for testing interactive command line programs

Proctest aims to simplify interacting with and testing terminal programs, providing convenience functions for starting programs and reading their output.

All blocking operations support timeouts so that misbehaving programs cannot block your test pipeline.
