testbench: Create tests and benchmarks together

[ library, mit, testing ] [ Propose Tags ]

Test your benchmarks! Benchmark your tests!

It's too easy to accidentally try and benchmark apples and oranges together. Wouldn't it be nice if you could somehow guarantee that your benchmarks satisfy some simple tests (e.g. a group of comparisons all return the same value)?

Furthermore, trying to compare multiple inputs/functions against each other requires a lot of boilerplate, making it even easier to accidentally compare the wrong things (e.g. using whnf instead of nf).

testbench aims to help solve these problems and more by making it easier to write unit tests and benchmarks together by stating up-front what requirements are needed and then using simple functions to state the next parameter to be tested/benchmarked.
