Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-261) runall should parse tests and examples in the same manner
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 15:26:16 GMT
    [ ] 
Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-261:

It would be nice if the runall aka exec utility could somehow figure out from the executable
itself what kind of output to expect and adjust automatically. This would let it distinguish
not only the tests designed to produce different output but also examples from tests, and
it might open a whole bunch of other possibilities as well. One approach might be to embed
some sort of a special string (e.g., in the form of an RCS comment) in the executable itself
and having the utility read it (see

> At this time, several of the self tests (0.cmdopts.out, 0.printf.out, 0.strncmp.out,
0.valcmp.out) produce output that lacks a summary section.
> The (or runall.c) utility should be able to compare the output of these tests
against a reference file in the same manner that the output is compared for examples.
> An extension of this concept is that it might make sense to unify the logic used to check
the test and example results, so that the same process would be used for both tests and examples.
