A unittest shim to make PDB debugging of test cases easy.
Usage: python -m pdbtest [module]
(after the pattern of python -m unittest [module])
PDBtest shims the unittest test runner machinery to, when a test fails due to an exception, print some information about the TestCase and test_method, and then launch the PDB interactive debugger, affording you the opportunity to easily examine the failure.
The library also provides a PDBRunnerMixin class that you can mix in to your test runner to achieve the same effect, and a modified TestProgram that will automatically shim the runner you provide and can be used in the same way as unittest.TestProgram.
