The test suite contains approximately 260 test files (CGMs), evaluation criteria (operator scripts), and reference pictures (GIF representation of the expected picture). The testing of a particular CGM interpreter implementation is accomplished by interpreting each CGM and using the corresponding operator script and GIF representation to determine if the rendered picture is correct. The SCLMOD01 file must be run first for purposes of calibration, the CGM files can then be run in any order.
The CGM Test Suite is available free of charge. Before downloading and using, please read the Software Acknowledgment and Redistribution statement. Any use of the Test Suite constitutes acceptance.
