numpy.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_run : str, optional

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

argv : list 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 ‘’.
