tessrun(1) convenience script for running TESS scripts en masse


tessrun [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -l ] [ application [ args ...] ]


The tessrun script is part of TESS, the (Te)st (S)ystem for (S)-Lang. It is intended to simplify the invocation, typically within a Makefile, of TESS-based automated regression suites. Each test in the current directory (marked by a .t suffix) will be automatically loaded into the S-Lang interpreter (within slsh, by default) and executed.

tessrun returns 1 if any tests fail, otherwise 0.
