Learn how to test your Raku exercises on Exercism
There is a Raku script with the extension
.rakutest, which will be used to test your solution.
You can run through the tests by using either of these commands (replacing the exercise name where relevant):
If the test is in the
If the test is in the top-level directory:
Before you start the exercise, the output will likely look something like:
# Failed test 'Say Hi!' # at hello-world.rakutest line 11 # expected: 'Hello, World!' # got: (Nil) # Looks like you failed 1 test of 1 hello-world.rakutest .. Dubious, test returned 1 Failed 1/1 subtests
You will need to modify the module with the extension
write a solution to pass the tests. Once the tests are passing, the output from
the command above will likely look something like:
hello-world.rakutest .. ok All tests successful.
If you have the
RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL environment variable set, the test
runner will stop after the first failure. For example:
In Linux / OS X:
export RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL=1 # now all the follow up runs will stop at the first failure prove6 hello-world.rakutest # until we do unset RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL # or you can use it for one run like this: RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL=1 prove6 hello-world.rakutest
Or in Windows:
SET RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL=1 REM now all the follow up runs will stop at the first failure prove6 hello-world.rakutest REM until we do set RAKU_TEST_DIE_ON_FAIL=

All modules used in the Raku track are included with Rakudo Star. If you get an error message such as the above when attempting to run a test, then you will either need to make sure you have the latest distribution of Rakudo Star, or install the module yourself using a package manager. See the Raku documentation on modules for information on how to install modules.
