Various tests, particularly the client program tests under
src/bin, use the Perl TAP tools and are run using the Perl testing program
prove. You can pass command-line options to
proveby setting the
PROVE_FLAGS, for example:
make -C src/bin check PROVE_FLAGS='--timer'
See the manual page of
prove for more information.
The TAP tests require the Perl module
IPC::Run. This module is available from CPAN or an operating system package.
