I would like to take the oppurtunity to see if there is any interest in standardizing tests for GNUstep. I understand that given the dramatic diffrences in approaches for a gui-app and gsweb-app that there will still be some specialized testing approaches for these parts, but I think standard "regression tests" to test the API basics should be implemented using one standardized test suite. Personally I have no particualr preference (yet :-) ).
It would be nice to use gnustep-guile since we already have a lot of work done with this for the base library. It's a bit difficult to learn, although probably anything else would be just as hard.

What about StepTalk? ( I am using it for testing of libraries and frameworks. Smalltalk syntax is similar to the ObjectiveC and it is easy to rewrite programs from one language to another (in both directions). In addition, you can test GDL interactively by using the StepTalk shell (

Some time ago I have already created GDL2 module for steptalk, because I wanted to learn GDL.

Moreover, I think, that using StepTalk can help it to get improved.

I can give you more information, if you are interested.

How could it be used for testing? I know that it is very easy to write things with it, but does it have a framework for running tests and reporting results?
