I am trying to learn the syntax of this file and I cannot understand one
thing. When I look at tests results here:,
one test case (optional_test_ref<>)
is marked as expected failure for toolset "gcc- 4.4", but in the file
I cannot find a corresponding entry for this toolset. How does the testing
framework know, then?
