# raises¶

class astropy.tests.helper.raises(exc)[source]

Bases: object

A decorator to mark that a test should raise a given exception. Use as follows:

@raises(ZeroDivisionError)
def test_foo():
x = 1/0


This can also be used a context manager, in which case it is just an alias for the pytest.raises context manager (because the two have the same name this help avoid confusion by being flexible).
