How do I make the default test runner in Guile run my whole test
suite? I put all tests in a tests directory (see


The way you wrote that file, the test suite will be run when you load
the module. Instead, you could wrap all those top-level forms (sans the
module declaration) in some kind of 'main' procedure.

Yeah, loading the module is what I currently use to run the tests in one file, but that won't be convenient when I add more modules and tests. I thought that maybe there was something like Python's test discovery, where you run `$ python -m unittest` and it will find all the tests instead of loading files individually by hand.

Maybe I'll try using a main procedure as you suggest.

And for what it's worth, I have an arguably cleaner implementation of
SRFI-64 here, but it's an R7RS library so it won't work out-of-the-box
on Guile yet:


Thanks, Taylan :)
