The cppyy tests live in the top-level cppyy package, can be run for
both CPython and PyPy, and exercises the full setup, including the backend.
Most tests are standalone and can be run independently, with a few exceptions
in the template tests (see file
To run the tests, first install cppyy by any usual means, then clone the
cppyy repo, and enter the
$ git clone https://github.com/wlav/cppyy.git $ cd cppyy/test
Next, build the dictionaries, the manner of which depends on your platform.
On Linux or MacOS-X, run
$ make all
On Windows, run the dictionary building script:
$ python make_dict_win32.py all
Next, make sure you have pytest installed, for example with
$ python -m pip install pytest
and finally run the tests:
$ python -m pytest -sv
On Linux and MacOS-X, all tests should succeed. On MS Windows 32bit there are 4 failing tests, on 64bit there are 5 still failing.
