32.4. TAP Tests

Various tests, particularly the client program tests under src/bin , use the Perl TAP tools and are run using the Perl testing program prove . You can pass command-line options to prove by setting the make variable PROVE_FLAGS , for example:

make -C src/bin check PROVE_FLAGS='--timer'

See the manual page of prove for more information.

The TAP tests require the Perl module IPC::Run . This module is available from CPAN or an operating system package.
