Ligaya Turmelle's Blog:
Generated phpt tests
August 30, 2006 @ 07:35:01

In a new post to her blog today, Ligaya Turmelle mentions a conversation she was having with some of the PHP documentation team about their transitions and the possibilities for integrating something new into the system - creating phpt tests automatically.

Seems Philip and colder were talking on the IRC about possibly using the php doc examples to automatically generate some phpt tests to make sure the examples in the docs worked correctly. I personally think it is a great idea for another reason - it would give the QA team a base listing of phpt tests for the various PHP functions. With that base listing it would be easier to modify/add to the various phpt tests to cover the boundries of the function.

A script to implement this feature is already in the works - a preview of it can even be found here.
