.SH NAME
go \- tool for managing Go source code
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B go test
.RB [\|\-c\|]
.RB [\|\-i\|]
.RB [
.IR "build flags"
.RB ]
.RB [
.IR packages
.RB ]
.RB [
.IR "flags for test binary"
.RB ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
"Go test" automates testing the packages named by the import paths.
It prints a summary of the test results in the format:

.Vb 6
\&      ok   archive/tar   0.011s
\&      FAIL archive/zip   0.022s
\&      ok   compress/gzip 0.033s
\&      ...
.Ve

followed by detailed output for each failed package.

"Go test" recompiles each package along with any files with names matching
the file pattern "*_test.go".  These additional files can contain test functions,
benchmark functions, and example functions.  See \fBgo-testfunc\fP(7) for more.

By default, go test needs no arguments.  It compiles and tests the package
with source in the current directory, including tests, and runs the tests.

The package is built in a temporary directory so it does not interfere with the
non-test installation.

.SH OPTIONS

In addition to the build flags, the flags handled by 'go test' itself are:

.TP
.B \-c
Compile the test binary to pkg.test but do not run it.
.TP
.B \-i
Install packages that are dependencies of the test.
Do not run the test.
.P
The test binary also accepts flags that control execution of the test; these
flags are also accessible by 'go test'.  See \fBgo-testflag\fP(7) for details.
.P
