NAME

usctest - macros and libraries for common functions in system call tests  

SYNOPSIS

Routines:
char *parse_opts(...)

Macros
TEST_PAUSE
TEST_PAUSEF(hand)
TEST(syscall)
TEST_VOID(syscall)
TEST_CLEANUP
TEST_LOOPING(counter)
TEST_ERROR_LOG(errno)
TEST_EXP_ENOS(array)

Global Variable(s) (see parse_opts(3) for complete list):
int TEST_RETURN;      /* set by the TEST macro to the return code from syscall */

int TEST_ERRNO;        /* set by the TEST macro to the value of errno after syscall returns */

/* All STD_* variables referenced below are set by the parse_opts(3) routine. */

 

DESCRIPTION

The TEST_PAUSE macro checks if the global variable STD_PAUSE is set. If so, it pauses for a SIGUSR1 before continuing execution. The signal handler used does nothing. After the signal is processed, the previous action is replaced for SIGUSR1.

The TEST_PAUSEF(hand) macro checks if the global variable STD_PAUSE is set. If so, it pauses for a SIGUSR1 before continuing execution. The hand argument is a function to be used to handle the SIGUSR1 signal when it is received. After the signal is processed, the previous action is replaced for SIGUSR1.

The TEST(syscall) macro executes (syscall) and times its execution. It saves the max time, min time, accumulated time, and execution count, if STD_TIMING_ON is set.

The TEST_VOID(syscall) macro works exactly the same as the TEST() macro except that it does NOT set the global TEST_RETURN. It is intended to be used with system calls that do not have a return value.

The TEST_CLEANUP macro prints timing statistics, accumulated through the TEST macro, if STD_TIMING_ON is set. Also, prints the errno return counts as logged by the TEST_ERROR_LOG macro, if STD_ERR_LOG is set. TEST_CLEANUP uses tst_resm(3) to output this information.

The TEST_LOOPING(counter) macro checks counter against the global variable STD_LOOP_COUNTER. If counter is less than STD_LOOP_COUNTER or STD_INFINITE is set, it returns TRUE.

The TEST_ERROR_LOG macro records the return of errno as unexpected, unless the option to turn it off is specified on the command line.

The TEST_EXP_ENOS(array) macro sets an internal flag for each errno in array, indicating that the errno is expected at some point in the test. This is used by the TEST_CLEANUP macro to determine which errnos are expected when printing the log. The array must be zero terminated.

The parse_opts routine parses the command line (see parse_opts(3)). All STD_* global variables used are set by the parse_opts(3) routine.

 

EXAMPLES

Below is a partial template of a system call test using these routines, macros, and global variables. A complete template may be found in the CUTS/sun/skel directory, in the file usctest.c.

void
setup()
{
        TEST_PAUSE;     /* Pause  if option specified */
}

void
cleanup()
{
        TEST_CLEANUP;
}

int main(ac, av)
{
        int lc;         /* loop counter */
        char *msg;      /* return from parse_opts */

        int exp_enos[]={EACCESS, 0};    /* expected errnos */


        TEST_EXP_ENOS(exp_enos);        /* set expected errnos */

        setup();        /* execute setup */

        /* parse options */
        msg=parse_opts(ac, av, (option_t *)NULL);

        /* Check parse_opts return */

        for (lc=0; TEST_LOOPING(lc); lc++) {
                TEST(open("file", O_RDWR))
        
                if ( TEST_RETURN == -1) {
                        TEST_ERROR_LOG(TEST_ERRNO)
                        /* BREAK test case, or whatever... */
                }

        }

        cleanup();

        return 0;
}

RETURN VALUES

The TEST_LOOPING macro evaluates to TRUE (1) or FALSE (0), and is intended for use in while or for loops. The TEST macro places the return value from syscall in the global variable TEST_RETURN and the errno in the global variable TEST_ERRNO. The TEST_PAUSE, TEST_PAUSEF, TEST_CLEANUP, TEST_ERROR_LOG, and TEST_EXP_ENOS macros do not have any return values.
