atf-test-program -- common interface to ATF test programs
atf-test-program [-r fd] [-s srcdir] [-v var1=value1 [.. -v varN=valueN]]

atf-test-program -l test_case1 [test_case1 [.. test_caseN]]
Test programs written using the ATF libraries all share a common user
interface, which is what this manual page describes.
In the first synopsis form, the test program will execute the listed test
cases, or all of them if none are provided as arguments. The test cases'
names can be given as glob patterns.
In the second synopsis form, the test program will list all available
test cases alongside a brief description of what they do. If any argu-
ments are specified, the list will be restricted to the matching test
cases. The test cases' names can be given as glob patterns.
In the third synopsis form, the test program will print information about
all supported options and their purpose.
The following options are available:
-h Shows a short summary of all available options and their
-l Lists available test cases alongside a brief description
for each of them.
-r fd Specifies the file descriptor to which the test case will
redirect its results. These results follow a machine-
parseable standardized format, and are not meant for
direct user consumption. See atf-formats(5) for more
-s srcdir The path to the directory where the test program is
located. This is needed in all cases, except when the
test program is being executed from the current direc-
tory. The test program will use this path to locate any
helper data files or utilities.
-v var=value Sets the configuration variable var to the value value.
