def hello():I can simply press LC's "docTest" button or "verbose" button to run Python with doctest.
What's happening behind the scene is that the following two lines
import doctestare appended to the code in the window, all of which is saved to a file which is then executed by Python, with or without the "-v" option. The result is saved to a second file which is then displayed in LC's output window.
Granted, if your script already includes some doctest-based testing within a "standard"
if __name__ == "__main__:"block, this addition to LC may not seem that useful; however, if you already use the "if..." block for something other than tests with doctest and have some docstrings-based tests in your code, it might be worth your while trying LC's new feature.
