'' didn't have any tests, so I wrote some.

Most of the tests are are for the main() method, which self-populates the keywords section of with keywords taken from a grammar file, 'Python/graminit.c'. The main() method allows you to choose the grammar file and the target file, so I've written the tests such that the actual does not have to modify itself.

Most of the tests generate dummy and graminit.c files for parsing. They are all deleted in the tearUp() stages of each test.

I've timed the tests. In total they take approximately 3 seconds so you may want to tag some of them as "slow". Also I've only tested on the mac, so someone may want to check it runs ok on Windows.

Most of the patch was written at the PyOhio 2010 Sprints. Thanks go to David Murray for advice given while working on it.

Greg, thanks for working on this.

I haven't looked over the whole patch yet, but there's one thing I noticed right away that needs to be fixed.  'python.exe' is the name of the python executable only on OS X, and the tests are not always run from the build directory.  To make the test OS and location independent you should instead use subprocess.Popen to run the tests, with sys.executable as the program to run.  (You can take a look at how other tests in the test suite do this by searching for sys.executable in the test suite.)

Thanks for the feedback David! I've replaced the old patch with a new version that uses Popen/sys.executable as suggested.

Wow, it sure took me a long time to get back to this.  Greg, the test ideas in your patch were great, and I used them all, but I wound up rewriting the actual code to better match the style of our other unit tests, and also to take advantage of some of our test infrastructure that should (I hope) allow the tests to run correctly on Windows as well as unix.

Thanks for your work, and sorry it took me so long to do something with it.

#9607: restore keywords.kwlist after testing it.

Just wanted to note that addCleanup is smarter than many core devs think:

self.addCleanup(lambda: setattr(keyword, 'kwlist', oldlist))

self.addCleanup(setattr, keyword, 'kwlist', oldlist)
