Create CTest Based Tests

CTest can execute tests for CMake based projects regardless of the test framework. You configure tests in the project file, usually, CMakeLists.txt. Basically, you enable testing for the project and register the test applications or even special commands.

add_test(NAME test_example COMMAND test_example)

Add test_example as an executable before trying to register it as test. It may be any executable command including arguments.

For more information about how to use CTest, see Testing with CTest.
