dh_auto_test - automatically runs a package's test suites


dh_auto_test [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- params]


dh_auto_test is a debhelper program that tries to automatically run a package's test
suite. It does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the
package uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a test or check target,
then this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If the
test suite fails, the command will exit nonzero. If there's no test suite, it will exit
zero without doing anything.

This is intended to work for about 90% of packages with a test suite. If it doesn't work,
you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_test at all, and just run the test suite manually.


See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and
control options.
