Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Building and Tests
One thing I find helpful is to define tests anonymously inside of a
single test group. So inside of say list_test.ml I have

let tests =
  "List" >::: [
    "Empty list should have size zero" >::
      (fun () ->
        assert_equal 0 (List.length [])) ;

    "Singleton list should have size one" >::
      (fun () ->
        assert_equal 1 (List.length [0])) ;

   ...

  ]

Then I have a single file for the project called test.ml which
includes all the module tests explicitly and runs them. For example,

let tests = "Project Tests" >:::
  [
    List_test.tests ;
    Array_test.tests ;
    String_test.tests ;
    ...
  ]

let _ = run_test_tt_main tests

Finally in my OMakefile I have

TEST_FILES[] =
    $(rootname $(find . -name *_test.ml))
    test

.PHONY: test
test: $(OCamlProgram unit_test, $(OUNIT) $(FILES) $(TEST_FILES))
    ./unit_test -verbose

The end result of all of this is that when I add a new test to an
existing module, I don't have to explicitly include it to be run. The
only thing I have to do explicitly is list my module tests in the
master test.ml file, and this list rarely changes.
