Test Support (numpy.testing)

Common test support for all numpy test scripts.

This single module should provide all the common functionality for numpy tests in a single location, so that test scripts can just import it and work right away.

Asserts

assert_almost_equal(actual, desired[, ...]) Raise an assertion if two items are not equal up to desired precision.
assert_approx_equal(actual, desired[, ...]) Raise an assertion if two items are not equal up to significant digits.
assert_array_almost_equal(x, y[, decimal, ...]) Raise an assertion if two objects are not equal up to desired precision.
assert_allclose(actual, desired[, rtol, ...]) Raise an assertion if two objects are not equal up to desired tolerance.
assert_array_almost_equal_nulp(x, y[, nulp]) Compare two arrays relatively to their spacing.
assert_array_max_ulp(a, b[, maxulp, dtype]) Check that all items of arrays differ in at most N Units in the Last Place.
assert_array_equal(x, y[, err_msg, verbose]) Raise an assertion if two array_like objects are not equal.
assert_array_less(x, y[, err_msg, verbose]) Raise an assertion if two array_like objects are not ordered by less than.
assert_equal(actual, desired[, err_msg, verbose]) Raise an assertion if two objects are not equal.
assert_raises(exception_class, callable, ...) Fail unless an exception of class exception_class is thrown by callable when invoked with arguments args and keyword arguments kwargs.
assert_warns(warning_class, func, *args, **kw) Fail unless the given callable throws the specified warning.
assert_string_equal(actual, desired) Test if two strings are equal.

Decorators

decorators.deprecated([conditional]) Filter deprecation warnings while running the test suite.
decorators.knownfailureif(fail_condition[, msg]) Make function raise KnownFailureTest exception if given condition is true.
decorators.setastest([tf]) Signals to nose that this function is or is not a test.
decorators.skipif(skip_condition[, msg]) Make function raise SkipTest exception if a given condition is true.
decorators.slow(t) Label a test as ‘slow’.
decorate_methods(cls, decorator[, testmatch]) Apply a decorator to all methods in a class matching a regular expression.

Test Running

Tester Nose test runner.
run_module_suite([file_to_run, argv]) Run a test module.
rundocs([filename, raise_on_error]) Run doctests found in the given file.
