DejaGnu Testing Framework

2.5 Future directions

In the near future, there are two parallel directions for DejaGnu development. The first is to add support for more hosts and targets.

The second would permit testing programs with a more complex interface, whether text based or GUI based. Two components already exist: a Tcl based X window toolkit, and a terminal package for expect. Both of these could be merged into DejaGnu in a way that permits testing programs that run in each environment.

Meanwhile, we hope DejaGnu enables the creation of test suites for conformance to ANSI C and C++, to POSIX, and to other standards. We encourage you to make any test suites you create freely available, under the same terms as DejaGnu itself.
