	aesubunit - run	SubUnit	tests

	aesubunit [ option...  ] filename...
	aesubunit -Help
	aesubunit -VERSion

	The aesubunit command is used to invoke	tests via the http://- unit testing interface.

	The shape of the external unittest should not need to be known a pri-
	ori.  After the	test has run, tests should still exist as discrete ob-
	jects, so that anything	taking a reference to them doesn't get 50
	copies of the same object.

	The aesubunit command may be used to replace the test_command or
	batch_test_command fields of the project configuration file.

   Control Protocol
	The results of the test	are obtained by	examining the standard output
	of the tests as	they run.  The text is meant to	be human readable, so
	that tests may run stand-alone.

	Tests should ideally print a header of the form
		test: test label
		testing: test label
	A successful test will produce lines of	the form
		successful test	label
		successful: test label
	A test failure will produce text of the	form
		failure	test label failure: test label failure test label [ ]
		failure: test label [ ]
	The square brackets indicate text which	may describe the test in more
	detail.	 It will be printed on the standartd output by the aesubunit

	A test which produces no result	(neither succes	nor failure) uses the
	following forms
		error: test label error: test label [ ]
	In general, unexpected output from the test will be sent through to
	the aesubunit standard output.

	If a subunit test terminates with an exit status other than zero, this
	is taken to be a no result indication for that test.

	The following options are understood:

	-Batch	This option may	be useed to specify that a batch test should
		be performed, and produce results in the appropriate form.

	-Change	number
		This option may	be used	to specify a particular	change within
		a project.  See	aegis(1) for a complete	description of this

	-Project name
		This option may	be used	to select the project of interest.
		When no	-Project option	is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT	envi-
		ronment	variable is consulted.	If that	does not exist,	the
		user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
		field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not
		exist, when the	user is	only working on	changes	within a sin-
		gle project, the project name defaults to that project.	 Oth-
		erwise,	it is an error.

		This option may	be used	to obtain more information about how
		to use the aesubunit program.

	See also aegis(1) for options common to	all aegis commands.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are op-
	tional.	 You must use consecutive sequences of optional	letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-project", "-PROJ" and "-p"	are all	inter-
	preted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not be
	understood, because consecutive	optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line, after	the function selectors.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	aesubunit are long, this means ignoring	the extra leading '-'.	The
	"--option=value" convention is also understood.

	The aesubunit command will exit	with a status of 1 on any error.  The
	aesubunit command will only exit with a	status of 0 if there are no

	See aegis(1) for a list	of environment variables which may affect this
	command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's
	project_specific field for how to set environment variables for	all
	commands executed by Aegis.
