It's redundant and not needed, as addition of +1 should be done in std::numeric_limits anyway. > Cheers, John. Thanks again, John. I got the tests running. What a nice test suite! I need to run the tests myself and know if the tests are OK before suggesting any changes. Is there a collected summary of the output files? Is this target report at the end of the test run of concern? ...failed updating 7 targets... ...skipped 21 targets... ...updated 574 targets... Best regards, Chris.
