Filter passing stdin through doctest. Example of usage:
$ doctester.py -v < file.txt
import sys, doctest, textwrap, re, types

# regular expressions to identify code blocks of the form
#<scriptname.py> ... </scriptname.py>
DOTNAME = r'\b[a-zA-Z_][\w\.]*', # identifier with or without dots
SCRIPT = re.compile(r'(?s)#<(%s)>(.*?)#</\1>' % DOTNAME)

# a simple utility to extract the scripts contained in the original text
def scripts(txt):
    for MO in SCRIPT.finditer(txt):
        yield MO.group(1), textwrap.dedent(MO.group(2))

# save the scripts in the current directory
def savescripts(txt):
    scriptdict = {}
    for scriptname, script in scripts(txt): # read scripts
        if scriptname not in scriptdict:
            scriptdict[scriptname] = script
            scriptdict[scriptname] += script
    for scriptname in scriptdict: # save scripts
        code = '# ' + scriptname + scriptdict[scriptname]
        print >> file(scriptname, 'w'), code

# based on a clever trick: it converts the original text into the docstring of
# a dynamically generated module; works both for Python 2.3 and 2.4
def runtests(txt, verbose=False):
