passing command line arguments to `swift test`


(^) #1

Is there a way I can pass command line arguments along to the testing
program with `swift test` so that they are visible in
`CommandLine.arguments`?


(^) #2

i want to be able to run a single test case at a time instead of my whole test suite and i’m currently invoking the test binary directly after doing `swift test`

No. If there were one, you would not be able to reliably invoke the tests automatically.

What are you trying to do? Test code that uses `CommandLine.arguments`?

To run one test you can use:
  swift test -s BasicTests.PathTests/testContains

See:
  swift test --help
