QuickCheck: Automatic testing of Haskell programs

[ bsd3, library, testing ] [ Propose Tags ]
This version is deprecated.

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 provided by QuickCheck. QuickCheck provides combinators to define properties, observe the distribution of test data, and define test data generators.

Most of QuickCheck's functionality is exported by the main Test.QuickCheck module. The main exception is the monadic property testing library in Test.QuickCheck.Monadic.

If you are new to QuickCheck, you can try looking at the following resources:

The quickcheck-instances companion package provides instances for types in Haskell Platform packages at the cost of additional dependencies.

Automatic Flags

Build Test.QuickCheck.All, which uses Template Haskell.


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
