Description Gaetan Boisson 2013-12-18 14:02:11 UTC
remove_unused_authorities.pl says in the help that it will accept both --test and --t as arguments in order to only test and count eligible authorities without removing them :

This script will parse all authoritiestypes given as parameter, and remove authorities without any biblio attached.
warning : there is no individual confirmation !
    --aut|authtypecode TYPE       the list of authtypes to check
    --t|test                      test mode, don't delete really, just count
    --help or -h                  show this message.

 but in practice it only accepts --t :

    'aut|authtypecode:s'    => \@authtypes,
    't'    => \$test,
    'h|help'        => \$want_help

A user launching the script with --test will see a warning that there was an unrecognised option, and the authorities will be deleted

Bug 11417: make sure remove_unused_authorities.pl accepts --test

This patches adds support for the --test option, as well as a
short message telling the user the script is running in test mode.

Test plan :
- Launch the script with -h to see the help
- Launch the script with --test and --aut with an authtypecode
  that is used in your instance
- Make sure it does the same thing as launching it with -t
- Launch the script for real and make sure it still works as
  expected, deleting unused authorities.
