trying to remember how to do inline code "testing"

I can remember Python having a feature which allowed you to add some
simple tests to your code, something like adding console output to your
actual python script, like so:

>>1+1
2
>>2*7
14
.... then python would actually run these queries and check that the
expected results occurred.
I can't find the docs for this feauture anywhere, but I'm certain I
didn't imagine this one!
Can anyone give me a reference?

thanks,
Alex

I did it. I proposed python as the main language for our next CAD/CAM software because I think that it has all the potential needed for it.

However, just to complicate things, I...

While reading c.l.j, I've noticed that some people prefer and indeed even recommend the use of "window.alert()" over "alert()". I can't find any technical reason to make this distinction, and seems to have a (tiny) amount overhead since window itself points to the global object, hence, a circular reference. (From everything I am reading,...
