Setting up Capture Points Tests

With a Capture Points test you can easily run and integrate your own unit test scripts. A Capture Points Test captures the output of the executed program with a Python3 Regular Expression. This output should be a number between 0 and 1.

  1. Press the “ Capture Points” button to add a new Capture Points test to your Test Category.

  2. Input which program you want to execute.

  3. Specify the Python3 Regex with which you want to capture the output. By default this captures a single float. This number is multiplied by the weight to get the amount of points.


    A Python3 Regex may contain \f, which will capture a float.


You can easily use existing unit test scripts and frameworks with the Capture Points Test, simply write a simple wrapper script around the unit test script that parses the output and outputs a number between 0.0 and 1.0 (e.g. the amount of passed tests divided by the total amount of tests).
