Specifying which Phobos modules to unittest
Hello all,

Is there any way to specify individual Phobos modules to unittest when building, 
instead of having to do the whole lot?

When working on 1 single module, it'd be nice to be able to unittest that one 
alone and not have to worry about doing the complete set of tests until ready to 
push back to GitHub.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks & best wishes,

the tests are not executed at compile time but instead at runtime before 
main(). so you have to compile the modules seperately, and only the 
modules you want to test with the unittest flag.
that means:
dmd -c module1.d module2.d module3.d
dmd -c -unittest module_with_tests.d
dmd module1.o module2.d module3.o module_with_tests.o

when you run your linked program your should only get the unittests from 
moduel_with_tests.

compile your module with an empty main (that is what the makefile 
does)

or

rdmd --main mymod.d -unittest

... on second thoughts, that doesn't seem to work.  I tested by putting in place 
a guaranteed-fail unittest; no result. :-(

mm I've been using this beast for ages with great success.

rdmd --main -unittest std\regex.d

may it be that -unittest should go first?
