- Subject: [RFC PATCH v4 3/3] t0014: Introduce alias testing suite
Introduce a testing suite that is dedicated to aliases.
For now, check only if nested aliases work and if looping
aliases are detected successfully.
The looping aliases check for mixed execution is there but
expected to fail because there is no check in place yet.
Signed-off-by: Tim Schumacher <timschumi@xxxxxx>
Those are the tests that I've come up with. It consists of tests
for nested aliases and looping aliases, both with internal calls
and external calls.
Unfortunately I don't have a fix for the last one yet, so I
marked it as expect_failure. The problem is that the test suite
is waiting a full minute until it aborts the running command
(which I guess should not take that long, as it blocks the whole
test suite for that span of time).
Should I try to decrease the timeout or should I remove that
test completely until I manage to get external calls fixed?
As a last thing, is there any better way to use single quotes
than to write '"'"'? It isn't that bad, but it is hard to read,
especially for bash newcomers.
