# Running and creating test cases (and examples)
First make sure to read the [section on
Makefiles](/Tutorial#using-makefiles) in the [tutorial](/Tutorial).
To run a particular test case yourself, you can then just do
~~~bash
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
~~~bash
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*](http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/diff.1.html)) 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
~~~gnuplot Caption
set output 'plotname.png'
...
~~~
~~~pythonplot Caption
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
...
plt.savefig('plot.png')
~~~
and are replaced by the corresponding figure when the page is displayed
in the wiki. Note that for gnuplot the *set output* command is optional. If you
don't supply a file name, a unique name looking like *_plot1.png* will be
generated automatically. For python the *savefig* command is mandatory.
To generate the figures from the command line, just do
~~~bash
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
~~~bash
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
~~~bash
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
~~~bash
make events/plot.png
make: *** No rule to make target `events/plot.png'. Stop.
~~~
## Running the entire test suite
Use something like
~~~bash
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).
If you want to generate all the graphs at once, do
~~~bash
make plots
~~~
