Ruby doctest

I monitor changes to the Wikipedia doctest page, and so noticed a
change in the Ruby implementation of doctest.

Scooting around their implementation I found that they have an !!!
special directive that says drop into the interpreter at this point
when testing allowing debugging in context.

Whereas Python has the more wordy version which works anywhere in ordinary
code or in doctests:
>>import pdb; pdb.set_trace()

I have a problem writing self-testable modules using doctest when these modules have internationalized strings using gettext _('...'). - The main module of an application (say app.py) calls gettext.install() to install the special _ function inside Python builtin. Other modules, taken from a general purpose collection of Python modules, also support internationalisation and doctest testing. For example:

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

I intend to use the doctect heavily. For this I am thinking of coding a class that comes with a built-in doctest functionality. I'd like to seek for input before I start. The idea is to have a class MyObj from where all my other classes will subclass. lets say: class C(MyObj):

From: http://docs.python.org/lib/doctest-soapbox.html ... Can I somehow tell doctest that it's time to quit? I ask because not all doctest examples are created equal. Some failures are catastrophic, making all subsequent failures at least uninteresting, and maybe painfully slow. Other failures are negligible, making the print of any subsequent failure valuable. So sys.exit() doesn't do what I mean: it raises SystemExit, but doctest

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,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies.
