Hello,
I would like to hear any information about how to unit test C code using Python.
I never done it, but you can either generate a Python wrapper (using
SWIG, Boost.Python, Pyrex ...) and then test the wrapper, or directly
call the C module functions using ctypes.

HTH,

Has anyone used tools like pychecker (or even Python's own debugger or profiler) during unit testing? Here are some things that might be natural to do: 1. pychecker can run all kinds of fancy tests on code. I'm wondering whether these tests could be incorporated somehow into individual unit tests. For example, one might use pychecker to...

I started using Python a couple of days ago - here are a few questions: * Doesn't the __main__() method automatically execute when I run my python program? * Only when I do an import of my test.py file within python and then run test.__main__() I can see where my bugs are. Is this correct? (right now this is my only way of running my...

Hi, first, python is one of my fav languages, and i'll definitely keep developing with it. But, there's 1 one thing what I -really- miss: data hiding.

What would heavy python unit testers say is the best framework? I've seen a few mentions that maybe the built in unittest framework isn't that great. I've heard a couple of good things about py.test and nose. Are there other options? Is there any kind of concensus about the best, or at least how they stack up to each other? Brendan
