  Description     : documentation tests for Octave

The Octave-Forge Doctest package finds specially-formatted blocks of example code within documentation files. It then executes the code and confirms the output is correct. This can be useful as part of a testing framework or simply to ensure that documentation stays up-to-date during software development.

This package will be maintained in the realm of the Debian Octave Group. A preliminary version of the package can be built using git-buildpackage from the repository https://salsa.debian.org/pkg-octave-team/octave-doctest.git
