This script is one of the octopus utilities.
- oct-run_regression_test.pl [ option ]... [ file ]...
This script can be used to generate and run the octopus
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.
To create a template for a regression test run, e.g.
- 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.
- -D DIR
- Directory where to look for the Octopus executables.
- -s SUFFIX
- 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
- 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).
oct-run_regression_test.pl -c finite_systems_3d/sodium.test
Running a test can be achieved with
oct-run_regression_test.pl -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
oct-run_regression_test.pl -pi -f finite_systems_3d/sodium.test
Run an MPI test with a local directory as working directory
oct-run_regression_test.pl -f benzene.test -D $PWD/../src -s _mpi
