## @deftypefnx {Function File} {} fail (@var{code}, @var{pattern})
## @deftypefnx {Function File} {} fail (@var{code}, "warning", @var{pattern})
##
## Return true if @var{code} fails with an error message matching
## @var{pattern}, otherwise produce an error.  Note that @var{code}
## is a string and if @var{code} runs successfully, the error produced is:
##
## @example
##           expected error but got none
## @end example
##
## If the code fails with a different error, the message produced is:
##
## @example
## @group
##           expected <pattern>
##           but got <text of actual error>
## @end group
## @end example
##
## The angle brackets are not part of the output.
##
## Called with three arguments, the behavior is similar to
## @code{fail (@var{code}, @var{pattern})}, but produces an error if no
## warning is given during code execution or if the code fails.
## @seealso{assert}
## @end deftypefn
