Test Programs    {#test_progs}
=============

@brief A description of the test programs used with the library.

The Programs
------------

There are currently two test programs built alongside the library.

1. `trc_pkt_lister` :  This test the C++ library by taking a trace "snapshot" directory as an input 
and decodes all or a chosen set of trace sources from within the trace data buffers in the library. Command
line parameters allow the test program to be controlled. 

2. `c_api_pkt_print_test` : This program tests the "C" API functions, using hardcoded tests 
based on the same "snapshots" used for the C++ library. Limited user control for this program. 
This can also run tests using the external test decoder to validate the external decoder API. 
See [external_custom.md](@ref custom_decoders) for details.

These programs are both built at the same time as the library for the same set of platforms.
See [build_libs.md](@ref build_lib) for build details.

_Note:_ The programs above use the library's [core name mapper helper class] (@ref CoreArchProfileMap) to map 
the name of the core into a profile / architecture pair that the library can use. 
The snapshot definition must use one of the names recognised by this class or an error will occur.

Trace "Snapshot" directory.
----------------------------

The `.\tests\snapshots` directory contains a number of trace snapshots used for testing the library.
Trace snapshots are dumps of captured binary trace data, CoreSight component configurations and memory 
dumps to allow trace decode.

Snapshots are generated on ARM targets and can then be analysed offline. The snapshot format is available 
in a separate document.

The `trc_pkt_lister` program.
-----------------------------

This will take a snapshot directory as an input, and list and/or decode all the trace packets for a 
single source, for any currently supported protocol.

The output will be a list of discrete packets, generic output packets and any error messages
to file and/or screen as selected by the input command line options.

By default the program will list packets only (no decode), for the first discovered trace sink
(ETB, ETF, ETR) in the snapshot directory, with all streams output.

__Command Line Options__

*Snapshot selection*

- `-ss_dir <dir>` : Set the directory path to a trace snapshot.
- `-ss_verbose`   : Verbose output when reading the snapshot.

*Decode options*

- `-id <n>`          : Set an ID to list (may be used multiple times) - default if no id set is for all IDs to be printed.
- `-src_name <name>` : List packets from a given snapshot source name (defaults to first source found).
- `-tpiu`            : Input data is from a TPIU source that has TPIU FSYNC packets present.
- `-tpiu_hsync`      : Input data is from a TPIU source that has both TPIU FSYNC and HSYNC packets present.
- `-decode`          : Full decode of the packets from the trace snapshot (default is to list undecoded packets only.
- `-decode_only`     : Does not list the undecoded packets, just the trace decode.
- `-o_raw_packed`    : Output raw packed trace frames.
- `-o_raw_unpacked`  : Output raw unpacked trace data per ID.

*Output options*

Default is to output to file and stdout. Setting any option overrides and limits to only
the options set.
- `-logstdout`          : output to stdout.
- `-logstderr`          : output to stderr.
- `-logfile`            : output to file using the default log file name.
- `-logfilename <name>` : change the name of the output log file.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The `c_api_pkt_print_test` program.
-----------------------------------

Program tests the C-API infrastructure, including as an option the external decoder support. 

Limited to decoding trace from a single CoreSight ID. Uses the same "snapshots" as the C++ test program, but using hardcoded path values.

__Command Line Options__

By default the program will run the single CoreSight ID of 0x10 in packet processing output mode using the ETMv4 decoder on the Juno snapshot.

- `-id <n>`          : Change the ID used for the test.
- `-etmv3`           : Test the ETMv3 decoder - uses the TC2 snapshot.
- `-ptm`             : Test the PTM decoder - uses the TC2 snapshot.
- `-stm`             : Test the STM decoder - uses juno STM only snapshot.
- `-extern`          : Use the 'echo_test' external decoder to test the custom decoder API.
- `-decode`          : Output trace protocol packets and full decode generic packets.
- `-decode_only`     : Output full decode generic packets only.
