Here's a normal example of running a Ruby/Unit suite:
aTestSuite = Test::Unit::TestSuite.new("MRW")
aTestSuite << a bunch of suites
got = runner.run(aTestSuite)
The above code runs all test cases. I want to run only one of them.
A "test suite" is (generally) a list of test cases. Here, it is a list of
lists of test cases. Running only one *.rb file would run all cases in that
file's suites. I want to run only one test case. Here are three test cases:
class SomeSuite < Test::Unit::TestCase
Running SomeSuite is trivial.
Now how to augment that so if a caller has supplied one case name (perhaps
via command line arguments and ARGV), and then only run that one case?
Suppose I only want to run test_runThisCase. If I had invented Ruby/Unit, we
could run it like this:
got = runner.run(aTestSuite, 'test_readMyPost')
Unfortunately, the test.rb files (like many Ruby library files) are
write-only, and I generally can't read them well enough to understand how to
apply that syntax. Is such a feature available through these objects?
Alternately, could I loop thru aTestSuite's cases, find it, and run it?
(I'm not asking how to run test suites, or how to parse command line
