Unittests cannot be used as points of entry

Bug #275059 reported by Michal Kwiatkowski on 2008-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Michal Kwiatkowski

Bug Description

Point of entry defined as:

    import unittest
    import foo

    class FooTest(unittest.TestCase):
        def test_foo(self):
            assert 42 == foo.foo()


for code defined in foo.py as:

    def foo():
         return 42

will raise an exception:

    Warning: Point of entry exited with error: AttributeError("'module' object has no attribute 'foo'",)

Somehow Pythoscope doesn't work well with unittest.main().

Fix would require running points of entry inside separate modules, but there is a viable workaround, committed in trunk r258.
