testing.run_module_suite(file_to_run=None, argv=None)[source]

Run a test module.

Equivalent to calling $ nosetests <argv> <file_to_run> from the command line

file_to_runstr, optional

Path to test module, or None. By default, run the module from which this function is called.

argvlist of strings

Arguments to be passed to the nose test runner. argv[0] is ignored. All command line arguments accepted by nosetests will work. If it is the default value None, sys.argv is used.

New in version 1.9.0.


Adding the following:

if __name__ == "__main__" :

at the end of a test module will run the tests when that module is called in the python interpreter.

Alternatively, calling:

>>> run_module_suite(file_to_run="numpy/tests/")  

from an interpreter will run all the test routine in ‘’.
