DH_AUTO_TEST(1)                    Debhelper                   DH_AUTO_TEST(1)



NAME
       dh_auto_test - automatically runs a package's test suites

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_test [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_auto_test is a debhelper program that tries to automatically run a
       package's test suite. If there's a Makefile and it contains a "test" or
       "check" target, then this is  done by running make (or MAKE, if the
       environment variable is set). If the test suite fails, the command will
       exit nonzero. If there's no test suite, it will exit zero without doing
       anything.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages with a test suite.
       If it doesn't work, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_test at
       all, and just run the test suite manually.

OPTIONS
       -- params
           Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
           suppliment or override the any standard parameters that
           dh_auto_test passes.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
