Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-08-14 21:17:40 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Check is a unit test framework for C. It features a simple interface for
defining unit tests, putting little in the way of the developer. Tests
are run in a separate address space, so Check can catch both assertion
failures and code errors that cause segmentation faults or other signals.
The output from unit tests can be used within source code editors and IDEs.

Comment 1 W. Michael Petullo 2005-08-14 21:58:58 UTC
This package builds on my iBook.  I took a quick look at the RPM specification
file and it also looked okay.

Comment 2 José Matos 2005-09-12 08:58:42 UTC
+ It build in mock on x86_64  
+ rpmlint  
W: check-devel no-documentation  
  It can be ignored.  
+ License is correct, valid for FE, and included in the package. 
+ spec file is readable. 
+ source file matches upstream. 
+ Requires and BR are correct. 
+ %post and %postun are correct. 
FWIW, a new version 0.9.3 is out. 

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-09-12 14:32:08 UTC
Thanks, 0.9.3 went into the initial commit.

Check is available in all current Fedora releases and in RHEL 5 and 6.  Paul Howarth needs it in EPEL 4 for the proftpd test suite.
