BSD.REGRESS.MK(5)           BSD File Formats Manual          BSD.REGRESS.MK(5)

NAME
     bsd.regress.mk -- regression test master Makefile fragment

SYNOPSIS
     .include <&lt;bsd.regress.mk>&gt;

DESCRIPTION
     bsd.regress.mk holds the standard routines used by the source regression
     tests.  Some variables and targets are for its internal use only.  The
     rest are documented here.

     Since this file also includes bsd.prog.mk, all of the usual OpenBSD Make-
     file variables may be used to build the regression test programs.

TARGETS
     depend   Build any dependencies required to carry out the current set of
              regression tests.

     regress  Executes all of the regression targets defined in the Makefile.

     run-regress-*
              Runs an individual regression test.  If the exit status of the
              program indicates an error or timeout, then a failure is logged,
              otherwise the test is marked as a success.

VARIABLES
     REGRESS_FAIL_EARLY
                  If this variable is set to anything but ``no'', the regress
                  target will abort as soon as a test fails.

     REGRESS_LOG  Points to the fully-qualified path of a file to which
                  regression results are appended.  Defaults to /dev/null.

     REGRESS_MAXTIME
                  Maximum limit of CPU seconds to spend on the regression
                  test.  Exceeding this time will result in a failure being
                  logged.

     REGRESS_ROOT_TARGETS
                  Targets for which root access is required to run the test.
                  The SUDO variable is invoked for these targets.  See also
                  SUDO.

     REGRESS_SKIP_SLOW
                  If this variable is not empty, skip over all the regression
                  tests which have been marked as being 'slow' using the
                  REGRESS_SLOW_TARGETS variable.

     REGRESS_SLOW_TARGETS
                  Targets which are defined as 'slow'.  All of these tests can
                  be skipped by setting the REGRESS_SKIP_SLOW variable.

     REGRESS_TARGETS
                  Targets which are invoked to run the set of regression tests
                  for this Makefile.  Defaults to run-regress-${PROG}.

     SUDO         Location of the sudo command, used to switch to root for
                  certain test targets which require it.

SEE ALSO
     bsd.port.mk(5)

HISTORY
     The regression system originally came from NetBSD, with many tests added
     by OpenBSD since.  The current Makefile framework was written by Artur
     Grabowski and Marc Espie for OpenBSD 3.1.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
     The build system is unable to distinguish between timeouts due to
     REGRESS_MAXTIME being exceeded, or a genuine failure occurring.
