I've been working on running the test suites on OS X in release mode
for a week or so now. Michael, have you tried? Can you give me a
sanity check? This is after patching the two basic_xml_grammar files
and the darwin toolset file.
There are several different classes of problems, that I can see. I
forget which files suffer from which problems at the moment.
- a number of tests that excite the same or a similar compiler bug as
basic_xml_grammar.ipp did, the compile never finishes, while the
compiler leaks memory.
- a number that compile, but hang when run.
and then there are some tests that just fail, but they're not a
concern until I can see the test suites run to completion. But at
least now I can submit a list of tests that one can comment out:
in some cases (like gregorian) I commented out an entire block after
several of them caused the run to hang, assuming the problem was in
some common header file: this list comes from going through my "cvs
diff" to see what I'd done.
If I can submit the results of these runs, just let me know to whom
and exactly what. I notice the regression results on metacomm are a
little old and don't seem to match my results.
