Extending doctest

One of my current tests looks like this (the program is an
interpreter for a scheme-like language):
>>result = parse_op('(with (b (newbox 5))'
... ' (seqn (setbox b 1)'
... ' (setbox b 2)'
... ' (setbox b 3)'
... ' b))').interp(Em ptyEnv(), EmptyStore())
>>result #doctest: +ELLIPSIS
(<Box ...>, ~...: <Num 3~)
>>result[0].location == result[1].location
True

The memrory location that the box refers to must match the actual
location in storage. Currently, the doctest stinks because it
depends on internal details of my implementation.

Is there a doctest feature that will allow me to stipulate that
one thing in a result is arbitrary, but identical to another
thing in that result?

Some time ago I hacked a custom solution to run doctests on text files containing documentation. The solution involved this kind of game: tester=doctest.Tester(globs={},verbose=1) tester.runstring(mytest) It worked fine, but now with Python 2.4.a3 I get DeprecationWarning: class Tester is deprecated; use class

Noob here. Just got into python a little over a week ago... One of the (unique?) things I really like about python is the concept of doctesting. But, now I want more! Here's what I'd like to see: * easy debugging. As soon as there is a failure (unexpected exception or mismatch), drop down into the debugger in a way to isolates the bug down to the nearest test/example as much as possible. * integrated with code coverage. I'd like...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
