I'm considering migrating my unit tests to boost.test, however there is a
feature I need which I can't find in boost.test. Please correct me if I'm

Essentially what I need is a system which, given a file name without path,
returns a fully qualified file name that places the file in the same
directory where the executable is, and also remembers the file name in an
internal file name list. When a unit test finishes, the system goes through
all files requested by the unit test. For each file, it compares it to a
file with the same name but .svd extension. If a matching .svd file does not
exist, or if it differs, the system fails the unit test, specifying the name
of the mismatched file.

For example, if I request two file names:


the system would be comparing them to


and if it finds any differences, or if the .svd files don't exist, will fail
the test.

Does this sound as a reasonable functionality to add to boost.test?
