This module exports help functions for parsing of test specifications.


get_tests(SpecsIn) -> {ok, [{Specs,Tests}]} | {error, Reason}


SpecsIn = [string()] | [[string()]]
Specs = [string()]
Test = [{Node,Run,Skip}]
Node = atom()
Run = {Dir,Suites,Cases}
Skip = {Dir,Suites,Comment} | {Dir,Suites,Cases,Comment}
Dir = string()
Suites = atom | [atom()] | all
Cases = atom | [atom()] | all
Comment = string()
Reason = term()

Parse the given test specification files and return the tests to run and skip.

If SpecsIn=[Spec1,Spec2,...], separate tests will be created per specification. If SpecsIn=[[Spec1,Spec2,...]], all specifications will be merge into one test.

For each test, a {Specs,Tests} element is returned, where Specs is a list of all included test specifications, and Tests specifies actual tests to run/skip per node.
