""" Usage: python test_parser.py

You will receive a whole bunch of error and warning messages from VTK
simply because the parser will also parse the obsolete methods and
that there is no pipeline with which I am testing the objects.  Other
important messages will be surrounded by a line full of *'s.  These
are the messages you should pay attention to.  For instance

$ python test_trace.py

Not testing the following objects since they cause segfaults.
['vtkLODProp3D', 'vtkPropAssembly', 'vtkRayCaster', 'vtkViewRays']
Testing vtk3DSImporter
Testing vtkActor

Testing vtkArrayCalculator
ERROR: In vtkDataSetToDataSetFilter.cxx, line 91
vtkArrayCalculator (0x818ced0): Abstract filters require input to be set before 
output can be retrieved
Testing vtkCreateKitModuleName
Not testing vtkpython.vtkCreateKitModuleName().  Not a vtk object.

I usually prefer redirecting the messages to a file like so:

$ python test_parser.py &> /tmp/err.log
