tester, a BASH code which calls the test programs for Python codes.

For a Python code called "prog.py", stored in the "prog" directory, a test package may be provided as part of the code. In the directory, there will be a file "prog.sh" which runs the tests. The tester code will find and run all the test codes that satisfy a given pattern in an ls command, that should be set by the user.
