  Description     : Mock/Stub/Spy library for Python

flexmock is a testing library for Python that makes it easy to create
mocks, stubs and fakes.

The API is inspired by a Ruby library of the same name, but Python
flexmock is not a clone of the Ruby version. It omits a number of
redundancies in the Ruby flexmock API, alters some defaults, and
introduces a number of Python-only features.

flexmock's design focuses on simplicity and intuitiveness. This means
that the API is as lean as possible, though a few convenient short-hand
methods are provided to aid brevity and readability.

flexmock declarations are structured to read more like English sentences
than API calls, and it is possible to chain them together in any order
to achieve high degree of expressiveness in a single line of code.
