DESCRIPTION ^

% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {} test @var{name}
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {} test @var{name} quiet|normal|verbose
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {} test ('@var{name}', 'quiet|normal|verbose', @var{fid})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {} test ([], 'explain', @var{fid})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {@var{success} =} test (@dots{})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{n}, @var{max}] =} test (@dots{})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{code}, @var{idx}] =} test ('@var{name}','grabdemo')
%
% Perform tests from the first file in the loadpath matching @var{name}.
% @code{test} can be called as a command or as a function.  Called with 
% a single argument @var{name}, the tests are run interactively and stop
% after the first error is encountered.
%
% With a second argument the tests which are performed and the amount of
% output is selected.
%
% @table @asis
% @item 'quiet'
%  Don't report all the tests as they happen, just the errors.
%
% @item 'normal'
% Report all tests as they happen, but don't do tests which require 
% user interaction.
%
% @item 'verbose'
% Do tests which require user interaction.
% @end table
%
% The argument @var{fid} can be used to allow batch processing.  Errors
% can be written to the already open file defined by @var{fid}, and 
% hopefully when Octave crashes this file will tell you what was happening
% when it did.  You can use @code{stdout} if you want to see the results as
% they happen.  You can also give a file name rather than an @var{fid}, in
% which case the contents of the file will be replaced with the log from 
% the current test.
%
% Called with a single output argument @var{success}, @code{test} returns
% true if all of the tests were successful.  Called with two output arguments
% @var{n} and @var{max}, the number of successful tests and the total number
% of tests in the file @var{name} are returned.
%
% If the second argument is the string 'grabdemo', the contents of the demo
% blocks are extracted but not executed.  Code for all code blocks is
% concatenated and returned as @var{code} with @var{idx} being a vector of
% positions of the ends of the demo blocks.
%
% If the second argument is 'explain', then @var{name} is ignored and an
% explanation of the line markers used is written to the file @var{fid}.
% @seealso{error, assert, fail, demo, example}
% @end deftypefn
