The test command


    bpipe test [-h] [-t] [-d] [-v] <pipeline file> [<input 1>, <input 2>,...]


Simulates execution of the pipeline until the first command is attempts to run. Then aborts the pipeline, displaying the command to the console for inspection.

Use the test command to debug your pipelines and check that long running commands are being correctly forumulated before they are executed.

Note: the test command can also be invoked using retry to test the command that will be executed if retry is performed:

bpipe retry test
