end

#assert_equal(exp, act, msg = nil) ⇒ Object

Fails unless exp == act printing the difference between the two, if possible.

If there is no visible difference but the assertion fails, you should suspect that your #== is buggy, or your inspect output is missing crucial details.

For floats use assert_in_delta.

#assert_output(stdout = nil, stderr = nil) ⇒ Object

Fails if stdout or stderr do not output the expected results. Pass in nil if you don't care about that streams output. Pass in “” if you require it to be silent. Pass in a regexp if you want to pattern match.

#capture_ioObject

Captures $stdout and $stderr into strings:

out, err = capture_io do
  puts "Some info"
  warn "You did a bad thing"
end

assert_match %r%info%, out
assert_match %r%bad%, err

NOTE: For efficiency, this method uses StringIO and does not capture IO for subprocesses. Use #capture_subprocess_io for that.

    end

end

#capture_subprocess_ioObject

Captures $stdout and $stderr into strings, using Tempfile to ensure that subprocess IO is captured as well.

out, err = capture_subprocess_io do
  system "echo Some info"
  system "echo You did a bad thing 1>&2"
end

assert_match %r%info%, out
assert_match %r%bad%, err

NOTE: This method is approximately 10x slower than #capture_io so only use it when you need to test the output of a subprocess.

#diff(exp, act) ⇒ Object

Returns a diff between exp and act. If there is no known diff command or if it doesn't make sense to diff the output (single line, short output), then it simply returns a basic comparison between the two.

#mu_pp_for_diff(obj) ⇒ Object

This returns a diff-able human-readable version of obj. This differs from the regular mu_pp because it expands escaped newlines and makes hex-values generic (like object_ids). This uses mu_pp to do the first pass and then cleans it up.
