LIBRARY

shtk_import unittest

SYNOPSIS

shtk_unittest_assert_file golden_spec actual_file

DESCRIPTION

The shtk_unittest_assert_file function verifies that actual_file, which must exist, matches some predefined contents specified by golden_spec.

The valid values for golden_spec are of the form:
empty actual_file must be empty.
not-empty actual_file must not be empty.
ignore The contents of actual_file are irrelevant.
file:<path> The contents of actual_file must match the contents of the file path.
inline:<text> The contents of actual_file must match the inline contents provided in text. Note that text can include escape sequences.
match:<regexp> The contents of actual_file must match the given regular expression in regexp.
not-match:<regexp> The contents of actual_file must not match the given regular expression in regexp.
save:<path> actual_file is saved to path for further inspection by the test case. This is not useful in the context of shtk_unittest_assert_file but comes in handy when used in conjunction of shtk_unittest_assert_command(3).
stdin The contents of actual_file must match the golden contents provided via the standard input.

EXAMPLES

The following examples all pass:
touch my_file
assert_file empty my_file

echo "foo" >my_file assert_file inline:"foo\n" my_file

echo "bar" >>my_file cp my_file golden assert_file file:golden my_file assert_file stdin my_file <golden

assert_file match:"fo" my_file assert_file not-match:"abcde" my_file
