asdf:test-op redux
Tuesday, May 30, 2006

I wrote about asdf:test-op a bit ago and have since modified many of my opinions as to the way to do it. Yesterday, I noticed that Greg Pfeil had come to exactly my new conclusions back in late March (I read planet lisp quasi-religiously but missed this somehow). The chief changes are to move most everything to the system definition (not the test system definition) so that

(asdf:oos 'asdf:test-op 'my-system)

will test my-system (makes sense!). The only bit Greg leaves out is

(defmethod operation-done-p 
           ((o test-op)
            (c (eql (find-system 'moptilities))))
  (values nil))

Which keeps ASDF thinking that your test operation hasn't been done. (As we all know, testing is never done). Thanks Greg.
