Is there a test suite for Matplotlib ?

Matplotlib is used as part of the Sage project, where we aim to run test-suites that are part of upstream packages where possible. Someone suggested it would be good if we did that for Matplotlib, which we currently do not do. However, on reading the contents of the source directory (README.txt, INSTALL etc) I could not find any reference to how to test Matplotlib.

Is there such a test suite, and if so how does one invoke it?

There is a set of nose tests installed in matplotlib.tests. It can be invoked with:

   import matplotlib
   matplotlib.test()

or (from the commandline):

   nosetests matplotlib.tests

Thank you Mike. We don't have 'nosetests' as a part of Sage, but it should be possible to write a script which just executes the first two lines.

I'll add that to Sage so we can run the matplotlib test suite.
