Hi folks,

A new release of the doctest package [1] is out, version 0.5.0, maintained by myself and Michael Walter.

One noteworthy change is a workaround for texinfo example blocks misused as verbatim environments (as is common in core Octave). We hope this might make it easier to start doctesting Octave.

See [2] for a summary of other changes.

The Octave-Forge Doctest package finds specially-formatted blocks of example code within documentation files. It then executes the code and confirms the output is correct. This can be useful as part of a testing framework or simply to ensure that documentation stays up-to-date during software development.
