OCT-RUN_REGRESSION_TEST.PL(1) octopus documentation OCT-RUN_REGRESSION_TEST.PL(1) [ option ]... [ file ]...

This script is one of the octopus utilities.

This script can be used to generate and run the octopus regression tests.

The man pages of Octopus and of the auxiliary Octopus sub-programs (oct-something) are not intended to contain the documentation of the programs, but only their basic description. For where to find more documentation, see the "SEE ALSO" section below.

Dry run. Don't run the test. Only print what would be executed.
Run in verbose mode. Useful for debugging the script.
Show a brief summary of command-line options.
Directory where to look for the Octopus executables.
Suffix to append to the base executable name.
-c file
Create a template for a Octopus regression test. This should always be used if you create a new regression test.
-f file
This option specifies the input file for a regression test.
Print content of the Octopus input file which is used for the current test to stdout.
Preserve working directory. Don't clean up the temporary working directory after the run.
Copy outout log to current working directory.
Run matches only (assumes there are work directories present).

To create a template for a regression test run, e.g. -c finite_systems_3d/sodium.test

Running a test can be achieved with -f finite_systems_3d/sodium.test

If a test run fails it might be useful for bug-tracing to preserve the working directory of this run and to print out the input file -pi -f finite_systems_3d/sodium.test

Run an MPI test with a local directory as working directory -f benzene.test -D $PWD/../src -s _mpi
