Testing on the Tcl track

Learn how to test your Tcl exercises on Exercism

To run the tests for an exercise, run the <exercise>.test script in the exercise directory:

tclsh <exercise>.test

For most exercises, all but the first test will be "skipped". This allows you, the developer, to engage in Test-Driven Development: coding only as much as needed to pass each test one-by-one. To override the skip commands, set the RUN_ALL environment variable to a valid Tcl true value [1] prior to running the test suite:

RUN_ALL=1 tclsh <exercise>.test

[1]: Tcl true/false values are documented in the man page for the C library function Tcl_GetBoolean.
