−  ==What is DocTest==
 +  The content of this page has moved to: https://github.com/sol/doctesthaskell#readme 
−  DocTest is a small program, that checks examples in
 +  
−  Haskell source code comments. It is modeled after
 +  
−  [http://docs.python.org/library/doctest.html doctest for Python].
 +  
−   +  
−  ==Installation==
 +  
−  DocTest is available from
 +  
−  [http://hackage.haskell.org/cgibin/hackagescripts/package/DocTest Hackage].
 +  
−  Install it by typing (on your Unix shell):
 +  
−  <pre>
 +  
−  $ cabal install doctest
 +  
−  </pre>
 +  
−   +  
−  ==Usage==
 +  
−  Bellow is a small Haskell module. The module contains source code comments.
 +  
−  Those comments are examples from an interactive Haskell session and demonstrate how the module is used.
 +  
−   +  
−  <haskell>
 +  
−  module Fib where
 +  
−   +  
−    Compute Fibonacci numbers
 +  
−  
 +  
−   Examples:
 +  
−  
 +  
−   >>> fib 10
 +  
−   55
 +  
−  
 +  
−   >>> fib 5
 +  
−   5
 +  
−  fib :: Int > Int
 +  
−  fib 0 = 0
 +  
−  fib 1 = 1
 +  
−  fib n = fib (n  1) + fib (n  2)
 +  
−  </haskell>
 +  
−   +  
−  (A line starting with <hask>>>></hask> denotes an ''expression''.
 +  
−  All comment lines following an expression denote the
 +  
−  ''result'' of that expression. Result is defined by what an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Readevalprint_loop REPL]
 +  
−  (e.g. ghci) prints to <hask>stdout</hask> and <hask>stderr</hask> when
 +  
−  evaluating that expression.)
 +  
−   +  
−  With DocTest you may check if the implementation satisfies the given examples, by typing (on your Unix shell):
 +  
−   +  
−  <pre>
 +  
−  $ doctest Fib.hs
 +  
−  </pre>
 +  
−   +  
−  You may produce Haddock documentation for that module with:
 +  
−   +  
−  <pre>
 +  
−  $ haddock h Fib.hs o doc/
 +  
−  </pre>
 +  
−   +  
−  ==Hacking==
 +  
−  DocTest is still experimental.
 +  
−  You can find a reference to the public source repository at
 +  
−  [http://hackage.haskell.org/cgibin/hackagescripts/package/DocTest Hackage].
 +  
−   +  
−  Patches are gladly welcome!
