1This directory, automated_validation_tests, contains a collection of
2projects that validate ANUGA against known scenarios either from physical
3observations or analytical solutions.
5The validation tests take the form of automated unit tests except that they
6all test the whole system rather than individual components and that they
7generally take considerably longer time to execute than normal unittests.
9The master script,, will run through all tests. 
11NOTE: In some circumstances there may be problems running
12IF MORE THAN ONE PYTHON IS INSTALLED.  The workaround is to:
131. Decide which python you want to use, and get the absolute path to that
14   executable ('which python2.5', for example)
152. Create a local 'bin' directory:
16       mkdir ~/bin
173. Create a 'python' link in that directory to the python executable:
18       ln -s <path_from_step_1> ~/bin/python
194. Create or modify your PATH variable in ~/.bashrc to include:
20       export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH
21   That is, ensure your 'local' bin is searched first
225. Remove any 'python' alias you may have defined in ~/.bashrc (or elsewhere)
236. Ensure all the above changes are in effect by opening a new terminal
25The above workaround was tested under Linux.  Not sure about Windows.
