ezmlm-test is run from the ezmlm build directory. It will
test most of the functions of most of the programs in
ezmlm-idx>=0.313. The program prints status and error mes-
sages to stdout. It requires that qmail runs on the host
and that mail delivery to a local user functions. By
default, it runs as the user ``eztest'' who should have
read and execute permission to the files in the build
For testing with an SQL database (requires ezmlm-
idx>=0.32; see -p), you need to have first created the
tables in the database, e.g. using ezmlm-mktab. A number
of switches allow overriding the default connection infor-
ezmlm-test creates the list ``eztest-__tstlist@host'' in
the directory ``~/__TSTDIR''. This directory and
``~/.qmail-__tstlist*'' will be overwritten/removed by the
program. In addition, the file ``~/__TSTDIR_err'' is cre-
ated. In cases of error, it often contains the error mes-
sage form the failing program.
ezmlm-test should complete without error. As many invoca-
tions of the programs test several functions it is not
easy to determine what went wrong if ezmlm-test fails.
Usually, ``~/__TSTDIR__err'' gives some leads, but then
debugging of the particular program is required. Usually,
this involves recreating the failing circumstances,
including environment variables.
If SQL support is tested, use sqldatabase as the
database, overriding the default ``ezmlm''. See -p.
Connect to an SQL server on host, if an SQL
database is used (see -p). Default is ``local-
host''. To specify a non-default port, add
``:port'' to the host name.
Connect as sqluser to the SQL server, if an SQL
database is used (see -p). By default, it is the
same as the executing user as specified by the -u
switch or the default ``eztest''.
-n Test assuming qmail>=1.02 and ezmlm-idx>=0.32. Nor-
mally, this is auto-detected. This switch is for
testing of ezmlm-test and unlikely to be generally
-o Test assuming an old (<1.02) version of qmail which
does not support the DEFAULT environment variable.
Normally, this is auto-detected, and DEFAULT sup-
port is used if qmail>=1.02 and ezmlm-idx>=0.32.
The ``old'' style works with all versions of qmail,
but requires adjustments for virtual domains.
DEFAULT support makes these adjustments unneces-
Test with SQL support, and use sqlpassword as the
connection password. By default, local databases,
rather than an SQL database are used for testing.
Restart ezmlm-test from section section. This can
be used to resume execution if the 30 s given for
mail delivery was not sufficient for the test mes-
sage to be delivered. ``9'' can be used to clean up
any files remaining after incomplete execution of
ezmlm-test. This option should not be needed.
Use sqltable as the table root name for the SQL
database tables, if an SQL database is used (see
-p). Default is ``list''.
Execute ezmlm-test as user. Default is ``eztest''.
The program refuses to run, unless the effective
user name matches this user name.
On some systems, some of the tests give a broken pipe
error. This is because code needs to be added to the
make_message function to capture error messages. These
errors can be safely ignored for now.
