to construct and dissect contexts. I particularly like the ability to
use a context up to a specified point. I think it may improve clarity
and reduce repeated code but I have not had any feedback on this as yet
so I would be interested to hear what you think.
original message follows:
> I have added a couple of experimental features to spec.js and I wondered
> what you thought (given that Dave's previous feedback had such a radical
> impact last time around)
> 1. in a context setUp function any calls to other contexts invoke their
> setUp function too. This allows a context to call other contexts.
> context("A stack with one item").setUp= function()
> context("A new stack")
> stack.push( "one item" )
> 2. allow a context to include markPointWhere( ) items. e.g.
> define context like so:
> context( "typical stack use" ).setUp= function()
> stack= new Stack()
> markPointWhere( 'stack instanciated' )
> stack.push( 'one item' )
> markPointWhere( one item is pushed onto empty stack )
> use like so:
> context( "typical stack use", "stack instanciated" )
> or even perhaps:
> context( "typical stack use, to point where, stack instanciated" )
> any thoughts?
