#3 failX functions not working?


I observed that the following functions are not working properly in the 2.0 version of shUnit2 (and probably in 2.1 either):

- failNotEquals
- failSame
- failNotSame

AFAIK, failNotEquals should fail when given parameters are not equal so passing '1' and '0' should fail, while '1' and '1' should not. However I always get failure, regardless of the parameters:

ASSERT:fail: not equals expected:<1> but was:<1>
ASSERT:fail: not equals expected:<1> but was:<0>

Same happens with testFailSame. This is what I tried...

failSame "failSame FAILED" "text" "text"
failSame "failSame FAILED" "text" "not same text"

...and this is what I got:

ASSERT:failSame FAILED expected not same
ASSERT:failSame FAILED expected not same

And, at last, same happens with testFailNotSame. I tried this...

failNotSame "failNotSame FAILED" "text" "text"
failNotSame "failNotSame FAILED" "text" "not same text"

...and I got this:
ASSERT:failNotSame FAILED expected:<text> but was:<text>
ASSERT:failNotSame FAILED expected:<text> but was:<not same text>

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something, but I imagine this could be a bug, so here you are the report. If not, I'd be very happy to know why, so I could understand the desired behaviour better, so thanks in advance ;-)

Otherwise, please take a look into the patch I'm attaching (done against 2.0.4 version of shunit2), I'm using it right now and it seems to work fine :-)
