# Running and creating test cases (and examples)

First make sure to read the section on Makefiles in the tutorial.

To run a particular test case yourself, you can then just do

```
cd src/test
make bump2D1.tst
```

which should give something like

```
...
qcc -g -O2 -Wall -o bump2D1/bump2D1 bump2D1.c -lm
[bump2D1.tst]
```

This indicates that the test compiled and ran successfully.

## Error checking

If the test fails, you will get something like

```
...
> 2.5 434 0.0678117 0.164104 0.11299303
> # refined 80 cells, coarsened 108 cells
make: *** [bump2D1.tst] Error 1
```

The last line indicates that make failed. The lines before this are the output of

`diff bump2D1/log bump2D1.ref`

That is, to check whether the test case succeeded or not, the default Makefile of Basilisk just compares (using *diff*) the *log* file created by the program to the matching reference log file (with the *.ref* extension).

To create your own test case (let’s call it *mytest*), you only need to create the source code (i.e. *mytest.c*), run it to create the *mytest/log* file, check that you are happy with the results and copy *mytest/log* into *mytest.ref*.

## Graphics

Most tests (but not all) also produce some kind of graph summarising the results (which allows for example to understand more easily how/why a particular test failed). Some tests produce these graphs directly when they run, but most rely on *gnuplot* to generate the graphs in a post-processing step.

This step is not automatically executed when doing *make test.tst*. This allows for example to run the test suite on *bare bones* systems which do not have gnuplot installed.

The makefile system knows about two kinds of graphics: *“inline” plots* and *“offline” plots*.

### Inline plots

These are generated using gnuplot or python commands embedded directly in the documentation comments of the source code (*mytest.c*). Using the standard wiki syntax for scripts these commands appear as

` ...`

```
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
...
plt.savefig('plot.png')
```

and are replaced by the corresponding figure when the page is displayed in the wiki.

To generate the figures from the command line, just do

`make mytest/plots`

### Offline plots

Alternatively, one can put the gnuplot commands in a separate *mytest.plot* file. Note that this method offers few advantages compared to “inline plots” (the prefered option).

To generate the corresponding plots, one can then do

`make bump2D1/plot.png`

which should give something like

`cd bump2D1 && gnuplot -e "batch=1; PNG=\"pngcairo\" ... ../bump2D1.plot ...`

Note that, while *plot.png* is the default name for the generated graph, the gnuplot script can also generate other graphs. Doing

`ls bump2D1/*.png`

(or * eog bump2D1/*.png*) reveal them all.

Note that if you try to generate plots for a test case which does not have a corresponding *.plot* gnuplot script, you will get something like

```
make events/plot.png
make: *** No rule to make target `events/plot.png'. Stop.
```

## Running the entire test suite

Use something like

```
cd src/test/
make -k -j8
```

where *-k* tells *make* not to stop at the first error and *-j8* uses parallel processing (assuming you have at least 8 cores on your system).

## Testing dimensional analysis

Dimensional analysis can be tested using reference files with a `.dims.ref`

extension. The default Makefile will then compile the corresponding `.c`

file using the `-dimensions`

option to generate a `.dims`

file which will be compared (using `diff`

) to the reference file.

A simple way to generate a new reference file for e.g. `test.c`

is to do

```
touch test.dims.ref
make test.s
```

The `make test.s`

command will fail (since the reference file is empty) and one can then copy the generated `.dims`

file as the new reference file (after checking that it is correct!) i.e.

`cp test.dims test.dims.ref`
