I run regression tests on the parsers that I've written. These tests
are done using a commercial package. In the past I used "make check"
to run them. The tests are simply feeding input and comparing output.
Here is a bit of a GNUmakefile to illustrate.
check: xml ...
@echo "== starting XML tests"
fail=0; for f in $(FILES); \
do $(JAVA) -cp "$(ANTLR_PATH)$(CP_SEP)$(GL_PATH)$(CP_SEP)." \
Main +filename +lay -xml input/$$f > actual/$$f 2>&1; \
cmp actual/$$f expected/$$f || fail=1; \
done; if [ $$fail = 0 ] ; then echo "== XML tests passed"; fi
