PHPUnit assertFileNotExists() Function
  • Last Updated : 18 Aug, 2020

The assertFileNotExists() function is a builtin function in PHPUnit and is used to assert whether a file exists at a given path or not. This assertion will return true in the case if the given file path doesn’t exist else return false. In case of true the asserted test case got passed else test case got failed.

Syntax:

assertFileNotExists(string $filename[, string $message = ''])

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $filename: This parameter is a string that denotes the File path.
  • $message: This parameter takes a string value. When the test case got failed this string message got displayed as an error message.

Below programs illustrate the assertFileNotExists() function in PHPUnit:

Program 1:



PHP




<?php 
use PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase; 
    
class GeeksPhpunitTestCase extends TestCase 
    public function testNegativeTestcaseForAssertFileNotExists() 
    
        $filename = "/home/bittu/Documents/php/"
    
        // Assert function to test whether given 
        // file name exists or not 
        $this->assertFileNotExists( 
            $filename
            "filename exists at given path"
        ); 
    
    
?> 

Output:

PHPUnit 8.5.8 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.

        $filename = "/home/Documents/geeksDoesNotExist/"
    
        // Assert function to test whether given 
        // file name exists or not 
        $this->assertFileNotExists( 
            $filename
            "filename exists"
        ); 
    
    
?>
