The $ASSERTS metacommand enables debug tests with the _ASSERT macro.




  • If an error message is passed to the _ASSERT statement, it is displayed in the console window if $ASSERTS:CONSOLE is used.


  • Version 1.4 and up.


Example: Adding test checks for parameter inputs in a function.

$ASSERTS:CONSOLE DO a = INT(RND * 10) b$ = myFunc$(a) PRINT a, , b$ _LIMIT 3 LOOP UNTIL _KEYHIT FUNCTION myFunc$ (value AS SINGLE) _ASSERT value > 0, "Value cannot be zero" _ASSERT value <= 10, "Value cannot exceed 10" IF value > 1 THEN plural$ = "s" myFunc$ = STRING$(value, "*") + STR$(value) + " star" + plural$ + " :-)" END FUNCTION
