Test Suite Log

HaO I want to document test suite failures when running the test suite here. Others are invited to contribute.

The purpose of the page is to find any test suite differences when new versions are tested.

Tcl 8.4 and 8.5

Windows Vista Pro 32 bit GER, MSVC6++, Platform SDK 2003SP1, Makfile.vc, build option: threads

Remarks

  1. Fails typically the first test run, repeating will not fail
  2. Test badly designed: failure due to existing folder C:/test

Remarks

  1. Fails typically the first test run, repeating will not fail
  2. Failed only once with privileged user
  3. Transaction issues, probably due to driver
  4. Message: database is locked (5)
  5. Trivial test error, wrong error help message expected
  6. Test badly designed: failure due to existing folder C:/test
  7. Test badly designed: package not found
  8. ITcl package load error in test environment.

Remarks

  1. Cleanup fails
  2. ITcl package load error in test environment.
  3. Explanation by Donal 2019-11-22 core list: "That test depends on whether the ISP is being “helpful” and doing crazy stuff like saying that unresolved DNS lookups resolve to their search page. Mine does that at home, and it's really irritating at times. But it's not Tcl's fault when the environment tells it lies… "

Tcl 8.7

The package "cookiejar" is not installed. It may be copied manually from the source library folder to the target lib folder.

Remarks

  1. Win Clipboard tests feel quite unrelyable and fail with different errors. This time, the error message was 'couldn't open clipboard: Succesfully processed.' (translated from german).

Remarks

  1. Probably due to system font changes in Win 8, does not fail for Vista and Win7

Remarks

  1. Win Clipboard tests feel quite unrelyable and fail with different errors. This time, the error message was 'TK SELECTION EXISTS'.

fvogel: the winCLipboard tests are reliable, it's just that some can fail if another application grabbed the clipboard. See [1 ].

Remarks

  1. Probably due to system font changes in Win 8/10, does not fail for Vista and Win7
  2. This failure was discussed within Ticket Tk 69b48f427 . A recheck on 8.6.7 also showed that failure. Known reason is a Windows 10 change in Creator Fall (2018-03) update.

I also archive (for me) the test log files build with:

nmake -f Makefile.vc test TESTFLAGS="-verbose bte" > testlog_tcl8.6.10.txt 2>&1
