Overview

The "compiler test suite" contains tests that exercise the compiler, but also several core packages and bug reports to test against regressions. They are located in the tests directory in the FPC source code.

Running the tests

Please see tests/readme.txt for details on how to run the compiler test suite.

It can output results to text file as well as to database according to that file.

The compiler test suite is a good candidate for running in an automated fashion. One way to get this done is to set up Jenkins.
