Slacking off? Me?? I guess maybe I have been because someone finally got sick of waiting for me to get to a new SVUnit feature and added it themselves…
…and that made me happy.
As of 2 about weeks ago, Tudor Timisescu is the latest addition to the list of active SVUnit developers-at-large. That brings us to a grand total of 1… which is 1 more than the 0 we had before!
Tudor’s new feature is the ability to selectively run single unit tests instead of having to run all of them every time. He added the feature to the scripting as well as a few unit tests in my less than ideal bash test suite without much trouble. Tidy, tested and much appreciated.
A new feature in this case means a new command line switch. Tudor lets you use the ‘-t <unit test>’ to select as many unit test files as you like. I suspect people would use this to run only the set of tests actively being developed in cases where a full suite takes longer than a few seconds to run.
Updated runSVUnit usage is:
Example command line is:
To be clear, that command line ignores all the *_unit_test.sv files in your directory except those found in apb_coverage_agent_unit_test.sv.
The -t switch is released in v3.7.
Please help me in welcoming Tudor to the team 🙂 . And if anyone else out there is interested in joining in, feel free to get a hold of me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
