Compiling/runing bitcoind unit tests
------------------------------------
bitcoind unit tests are in the src/test/ directory; they
use the Boost::Test unit-testing framework.
To compile and run the tests:
cd src
make -f makefile.unix test_bitcoin # Replace makefile.unix if you're not on unix
./test_bitcoin # Runs the unit tests
If all tests succeed the last line of output will be:
*** No errors detected
To add more tests, add BOOST_AUTO_TEST_CASE's to the existing
.cpp files in the test/ directory or add new .cpp files that
implement new BOOST_AUTO_TEST_SUITE's (the makefiles are
set up to add test/*.cpp to test_bitcoin automatically).
Compiling/running Bitcoin-Qt unit tests
---------------------------------------
Bitcoin-Qt unit tests are in the src/qt/test/ directory; they
use the Qt unit-testing framework.
To compile and run the tests:
qmake bitcoin-qt.pro BITCOIN_QT_TEST=1
make
./bitcoin-qt_test
To add more tests, add them to the src/qt/test/ directory,
the src/qt/test/test_main.cpp file, and bitcoin-qt.pro.
