* tests/: add shell test-suiteArturo Borrero2015-12-181-0/+23
This new test-suite is intended to perform tests of higher level than the other reggresion test-suite. It can run arbitrary executables which can perform any test apart of testing the nft syntax or netlink code (which is what the regression tests does). To run the test suite (as root): % cd tests/shell % ./ Test files are executables files with the pattern <<name_N>>, where N is the expected return code of the executable. Since they are located with `find', test-files can be spreaded in any sub-directories. You can turn on a verbose execution by calling: % ./ -v Before each call to the test-files, `nft flush ruleset' will be called. Also, test-files will receive the environment variable $NFT which contains the path to the nftables binary being tested. You can pass an arbitrary $NFT value as well: % NFT=../../src/nft ./ Signed-off-by: Arturo Borrero Gonzalez <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
