To run IronRuby tests you can use Merlin\Main\Languages\Ruby\Scripts\irtests.rb.
But it won't run on Linux as is due to dependencies on various batch files. We should replace all of them by Ruby scripts in future so that it runs on Linux as well.

Subject: [IronPython] Running the IronPython tests (on Mono)

Hey folks,

I'm trying hard to shoehorn IronPython (and IronRuby) into Ubuntu Lucid, the next long-term stable release.  They're asking if I can get the test suite to execute as part of the package build script.

Can someone walk me through running the test suite?

The one caveat is that this is a snapshot from git as of 08/05/2009.
I've been working on this version since then in order to get it packaged up.  It shouldn't take quite so long to get releases packaged up in the future.

Let me know if you need a shell on ironruby.colliertech.org and when/if you can help me walk through getting the test suite going.

Thanks in advance,
