digitalmars.D - Raising the bar on Phobos unittest coverage

With the new -cov=nnn (not pulled yet) and -main, we can now add to the build 
process a minimum bar for unit test coverage.

The current state looks like this, the percentages are the current coverage 
amounts. It's not bad, but there's a lot of low hanging fruit ready for pull 
requests!

 From now on, I'd like such unittest coverage (and justification for low 
coverage) to be part of the minimum standard for all new phobos modules.

My first guess would be that you're running a different OS from Walter and that OS-specific code counts as not being run when you run it on a different OS. If that's the case, std.file is doomed to have lower code coverage because of the larger-than-average percentage of it which is OS-specific. The coverage should still be looked into and improved where possible, but Linux code is clearly never going to run on Windows or vice versa. - Jonathan M Davis

Code that is statically compiled out is not counted as executable code by the coverage analyzer. As for looking into it, examine the report generated - std-file.lst - it'll tell you which lines were executed and which were not.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I really meant runtime as in time. It's great that we're striving for more unittest coverage but we should keep an eye on the time it takes to run them. So I ran the executables with /bin/time and std.file accounts for 60% of the total runtime (not including compilation). Even though file IO is notoriously slow this seems excessive. https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/pull/653

Then it was a bad guess. Good to know (and better behavior that way really).

Maybe.. I did it like that so I wouldn't have to recompile everytime I needed to change that flag.

The normal thing to do with unit tests when you want to have them enabled on part of the time is to use a version block. And you have to recompile whenever you make changes anyway, so I wouldn't expect it to be a big deal in general. - Jonathan M Davis

Also, a unittest executable is built and then run and then deleted. I see no point to keeping it around and running it in different ways, hence no real value in passing parameters to it via an environment variable.

Is it though? It basically means that if you don't instantiate a template, it statically doesn't get compiled, so it is not counted: main.d: //-------- |void foo(T)() |{ | int i = 0; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; | ++i; |} | |void main() |{ 1| int i; |} main.d is 100% covered //-------- main.d 100% covered my ass. I also call BS on std.algorithm's 95% coverage. I looked at the .lst. It is *roughly* covered, but not 95% covered. We need to be able to differentiate code that is stripped out due to "version" blocks (which legitimately doesn't count for the current build), and code that simply didn't get compiled because it WASN'T COVERED.

Yeah. The typical approach of testing each function individually is a bit expensive with std.file. It really should be refactored so that it does everything in only a few unittest blocks rather than a bunch of them so that it minimizes how much it repeats I/O operations. I've been meaning to go through it and do that but haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for reminding me though. I'd forgotten about it. Still, 60% of the total runtime seems awfully high. I don't recall every getting the impression that anything like that was going on. - Jonathan M Davis

Meh, no worries. I can always add a patch removing those superfluous assert(false)s and take it back to the top, right? :-) No, not right away. If by tomorrow afternoon it's still languishing I might think about it. :-P

I thought that was the idea. Perhaps it's not finished yet.
 I think a minimum acceptable threshold is necessary but not sufficient -- say
 your minimum code coverage is 85%, it's still most likely unacceptable if your
 coverage drops (say) from 92% to 87%.

I would say that if the -cov=nnn flag works as I described you need to update the percent as soon as you increase the coverage. In the above case the flag should have said -cov=92 and not 85.
 Anyway, the main benefit I see in printing the percentages isn't for testing
 purposes (though it's handy) but in advertising the existence and usefulness of
 code coverage analysis, and giving developers a nudge as to where and what to
 work on :-)

I don't mind it :) It's better if it can be enforced. -- /Jacob Carlborg

If your minimum acceptable coverage is 92%, why list it as 85%? ????

The main point of the bar is so there's an automated check for when it drops. You don't have to manually look, which will never happen.

It's per module and should be raised if the coverage is increased. -- /Jacob Carlborg

 Awes.

Auto-testing failed, but I think not due to me :-( setting up remote topull -> https://github.com/WebDrake/phobos.git fetching contents of https://github.com/WebDrake/phobos.git error: RPC failed; result=22, HTTP code = 405 fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly Does it re-try in the event of pull failures like this?
 Can I suggest tweaking the make files to print code coverage percentages when
 running the Phobos unittests?  Would be useful to check if there are any
 unexpected drops or just to have a quick glance where could be useful to try
and
 help out.

Nice! Could you please submit an enhancement request?

assert(false)s and take it back to the top, right? :-)

I believe that new commits in the pull (and possibly rebasing the pull) do cause a pull request to go up in priority in the pull tester. - Jonathan M Davis

A matching bugzilla is always a good idea. The changelog is built from that. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Additional tests do not affect D users, though, so it's not as interesting to have on the changelog as actual fixes or enhancements.

I wasn't sure if you might allow some margin to allow for the fact that introducing new functionality might introduce a drop in overall code coverage (I found not all "failures" of code coverage are avoidable and not all of them are real failures).
 The main point of the bar is so there's an automated check for when it drops.
 You don't have to manually look, which will never happen.

I just know that if every time I build Phobos I get a report that mentions that std.somemodule has only 53% code coverage, I might start to feel an obligation to do something about that. ;-)

Wasn't arguing against having the minimum coverage bar, I think it's a good idea. :-) I did misinterpret it a bit, though, as being a common minimum applied to all modules, not a per-module bar.
