Initiates Algosim’s self-test program or a particular diagnostics program.
sis a string
SelfTest() starts a new process which will execute Algosim’s self-test program.
There is usually no need to run this function; it will not detect an issue not present at compile-time. However, a few of the almost 500 000 tests involve timings and stochastic processes that may cause a test to fail (due to poor system performance or bad luck).
In addition, a few of the tests attempts to access Windows GUI functions; these may fail if the workstation is locked.
Finally, please note that sounds may be played during the execution of the program, especially in the chapter testing MIDI functions.
SelfTest(s) starts a new process with the diagnostics program named
s. Currently, only “graphics” is recognised.
