1To run the test suite, change to this directory and run "./runtest".  It will
2run all of the test cases, and list those with unexpected outcomes.  Adding the
3-v option will cause it to show expected outcomes as well.  To only run the test
4cases for particular applets:
5
6./runtest <applet1> <applet2>...
7
8Set SKIP_KNOWN_BUGS environment variable to any non-empty value
9to exclude tests which are known to fail.
10
11Set SKIP_INTERNET_TESTS to exclude tests which require working
12internet connection.

15Common causes of false positives:
16
17For busybox built against uclibc, /etc/TZ does not exist or does not match
18host system timezone setting. For glibc based host systems, timezone settings
19are in /etc/localtime.
20
21LANG and LC_xxx environment variables set to non-C locale.

24Developer's notes:
25
26The test cases for an applet reside in the subdirectory of the applet name.
27The name of the test case should be the assertion that is tested.
28The test case should be a shell fragment that returns successfully
29if the test case passes, and unsuccessfully otherwise.
30
31If the test case relies on a certain feature, it should include the string
32"FEATURE: " followed by the name of the feature in a comment.  If it is always
33expected to fail, it should include the string "XFAIL" in a comment.
