This directory (aapits) is located in tools directory
of the ACPICA source tree and contains sources of
ACPICA API validation Test Suite (AAPITS)
AAPITS verifies, in emulating mode, conformity of the ACPICA API
implementation to the definitions in ACPI Component Architecture
Programmer Reference (ACPICA ProgRef).
There are 9 test cases relevant to the following chapters
ACPICA ProgRef respectively:
Test Case Chapter
atinit 8.1 Subsystem Initialization, Shutdown, and Status
attable 8.2 ACPI Table Management
atnamespace 8.3 ACPI Namespace Access
athardware 8.4 ACPI Hardware Management
atfixedevent 8.6 ACPI Fixed Event Management
atgpe 8.7 ACPI General Purpose Event Management
athandlers 8.8 ACPI Miscellaneous Handler Support
atresource 8.9 ACPI Resource Management
atmemory 8.10 Memory Management
Directory which tests specification are located in.
Each test case is represented by the pair of .c and .h files with
the same filename.
Auxiliary testing modules and TS main file.
Relavant copies of the same files from the os_specific/service_layers
directory updated to be used in the AAPITS utlility with the sed command:
sed -i s/^AcpiOs/AcpiOsActual/ os*xf.c
Then add the following line:
+ #include "atosxfwrap.h"
Directory which supporting ASL codes are located in.
Directory which supporting shell utility are located in.
MSVC project to compile the TS utility under Windows.
Usage: copy to the generate/msvc catalog and insert into
the AcpiComponents.dsw workspace.
Makefile based on AcpiExec utility one supporting
compilation of the TS utility under Linux.
Usage: copy the aapits directory tree to the relevant acpica-unix-*/tools
directory and perform the make command to generate the aapits binary,
to run the paticular test type the following:
./aapits <test case> <test num> <aml dir>
Here <test case> is from 1 (init) to 9 (handlers),
<test num> is the appropriate assertion number (see the files in spec dir),
<aml dir> is the directory with the auxiliary aml files (actually it is
./tmp/aml directory which is created by make in the asl directory), for
example, to run assertion 0041 of Hardware Management test case type:
./aapits 3 41 ./tmp/aml
