Description (last modified by jackburton)

It would be good to build this test suite for Haiku at some point, and possibly also for other BeOS variants, in order to test them for (in)compatibility.

credit to Philippe Houdoin for this worthy suggestion from the openbeos list

Note that we have already some of those tests in the tree (src/tests/system/libroot/posix/posixtestsuite)

BTW, for some reason this ticket is assigned to me, but I don't feel responsible for it and don't think I'll take action any time soon. If anyone wants this test suite, please just grab the ticket and do it.

Comments on posix-testsuite.diff:

  • made the output easier to observe;
  • added the sigsuspend_6-1 test to the package;
  • made the fork_3-1 test return when it fails;
  • added output to the pthread_once tests;
  • other minor cosmetic changes.

Version: R1 development

"PosixTestSuite" is listed in OptionalTestPackages. Is there a reason to keep this ticket open?

AFAIK it's not complete.

These patches definitively could use some reviews.

comment:18 by bonefish, 8 years ago

Last year I removed the POSIX test suite as it were and replaced it by a complete import of the original source. Thereafter I updated/removed some of the tests (signal and timer related ones at least) to agree with the POSIX specification. Both the test suite and Haiku's POSIX compliance need more work.

Anyway, the patches are now obsolete. While the colored output maybe be nice to look at, it doesn't help with keeping track of the functional changes. So I don't think we should reintroduce it. The same goes for the style changes.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

It's now also available as an haikuports recipe, and shows several failures in Haiku. But I think it's time to close this ticket.
