Description : regression testing system for the S-Lang scripting language
TESS is the (Te)st (S)ystem for (S)-Lang, which aims at reducing the
workload and ad-hoc nature of regression testing S-Lang software, by
collecting common testing elements into a single, easy-to-use framework.
TESS provides the S-Lang developer nominal mechanisms for tailoring the
S-Lang environment and invoking functions with arbitrary inputs, while
transparently inspecting and cleaning the stack, gathering pass/fail
statistics, and providing error recovery from selected exceptions.
A preliminary version of the package is available at the apt-getable
The package will be collectively maintained by the Debian JED Group
