gb.deg.unittest is stopped but in the develop branch there is
gb.test which is the last state of my work:


With that I am testing all my work in my firm. It has no fancy GUI
output any more but prints out TAP to the console as we discussed about
one or two years ago here in the ML.

I would recommend this for testing, I use it all day long and it works
well. It is the only project I know that is able to test any Gambas project.

But: If you test any project with it, before deployment of your project
I recommend that you remove


out of the .project file. With my projects I do this in a makefile.

For the future of gb.test:

The last state of the discussion between Tobi and me was (as I
remember), that it should replace the current gb.test in the Gambas3

The IDE should afterwards provide a way to execute tests.

Also a fancy GUI interface should be written to count, measure, display
test results.

Alles Gute
