Somebody (I don't want to name names; maybe it is me?) has completely broken doctesting of user files, evidently. There has been a lot of changes made to the doctesting system recently, and I don't know which thing caused the above very serious problems. Even doctesting a pure .py file is broken! teragon:.sage was$ more foo.py def foo(x): r""" Shows how doctests don't work. EXAMPLES: sage: 2+2 5 sage: foo(3) 4 """ print(x) teragon:.sage was$ sage -t foo.py ---------------------------------------------------------------------- All tests passed! Total time for all tests: 0.0 seconds -- William

mhansen -- you're right, this problem only occurs when the filename is in a directory starting with a .dot. E.g., in my test above I was in $HOME/.sage.

The attached patch scripts-2934.patch enables doctesting in hidden directories. This used to be disabled since we kept lots of temp data in ./doctest -- but now we don't do to some nice changes made by Timothy Abbot.

Looks good to me and fixes the problem.

**Note:**See TracTickets for help on using tickets.

I can only reproduce this when the .py file is in a directory starting with a "."
