Abstract

An arrangement is described to permit test cases to be created and modified either in the hardware test environment with immediate code turnaround, or to be developed off-line using IBM Personal Computer (PC) editors to create transportable code. A Test-Case Executor (TCX) system is described in the preceding article. A simple line-editor is included with TCX, permitting test-case procedures to be created, modified, and executed interactively with the system under test. The following lists the line-editor commands. TCX commands associated with the TCX line editor. APPEND appends a previously created procedure. CALL invokes a procedure previously saved. CLRDIR clears directory of all saved procedures. DIR displays list of saved procedures. EDIT starts an edit session.
