python-scripttester

Scripttest provides a class to be instantiated in tests that checks that scripts can be run and give correct output. The class tries to find your scripts whether you have installed them or not. If you have not installed them, the scripts will not be on your system PATH, and we have to find them. The heuristic is to look (by default) in the directory containing mymodule; if there is a setup.py file there, and a scripts subdirectory, assume that directory contains the scripts.

Note there is no way of using this not-installed mechanism to find entrypoint scripts, that have not been installed. To find these, we would have to run the setup.py file.
