Pseudo Comments for Test Classes

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54

Obsolete Syntax

... "#AU Risk_Level Critical|Dangerous|Harmless

... "#AU Duration Short|Medium|Long


The string "#AU in the statement CLASS with the addition FOR TESTING defines a pseudo comment for defining a test property of a test class.

Pseudo comments are case-sensitive. Any deviations from the syntax produce a warning when tests are performed.


  • Real additions are now available for the statement CLASS ... FOR TESTING for defining test properties. These additions should be used instead of the pseudo comments. This makes pseudo comments for test classes obsolete. Existing pseudo comments are not ignored, but should no longer be used.

  • To specify both test attributes for a test class, the CLASS statement must be spread across at least two lines.
