Add options to doctest examples while they are running

Project Description

When using the doctest module it is often convenient to use the ELLIPSIS option, which allows you to use ... as a wildcard. But you either have to setup the test runner to use this option, or you must put #doctest: +ELLIPSIS on every example that uses this feature.

dtopt lets you enable this option globally from within a doctest, by doing:

>>> from dtopt import ELLIPSIS

(The options NORMALIZE_WHITESPACE and COMPARE are also available)

You can install this from the subversion repository with easy_install dtopt==dev.
