Gennadiy's unit_test_development branch has been merged into the main CVS
As expected, this major revision to Boost.Test broke a lot of regression
tests. Usually just minor stuff like status/Jamfile needing
"<lib>../libs/test/build/test_exec_monitor" added to a test, or the test
program failing to #include <iostream> or <boost/cstdlib.hpp>, which
apparently were #included in the prior version of test_tools.hpp.
Originally there were a lot of changes that had to be made to
status/Jamfile, but Gennadiy made many of them, and then I made some more,
but it may still have some residual problems.
GCC is causing a certain amount of grief; I had to comment out a function
(compare_and_continue_impl) in test_tools.hpp to get it to work at
all. That's something Gennadiy knows about, and presumably will fix soon.
I've cleared over 100 fails already. (That isn't hard to do; when five
compilers all fail a test, one fix clears five fails.) See
You can see the remaining problems most clearly on
shows test results that have changed in a larger font.
I'm exhausted; perhaps someone else could work on clearing errors for
awhile. Even if you just concentrate on one compiler, often fixing fails
for it will fix the fails for other compilers too.
