Sorry, read "simulations" (in as in simulating a physical system)
rather than "tests" - there could be some confusion there. Although I
don't claim to be an expert in Boost.Test, I haven't balked at the
setting up it takes in the cases where I (perhaps unimaginatively)
thought it fitted.
Are you suggesting I should have a longer look at
program_execution_monitor? Does have a way of saving up the errors
that occur (and stop individual simulations) during a run and then
print me all the details (with test names) at the end (will it mail
them to me as they happen? That'd be great.)
