When bjam is used for reporting purposes (presumably using using
testing.jam) there is a need to report timings.
For reporting purposes, we care about certain activities:
* Lib builds
* Runs (of test programs)
For each of these activities (and some may occur more than once per test)
reporting needs certain information collected (preferably in a single .xml
file per test). There's an example of compile information below.
In past postings, I've forgotten to mention that execution time will be
needed by some reports. For example,
The time should be reported in seconds and tenths, or maybe seconds and
hundredths. It would be very helpful if the time format is the same
regardless of the platform.
All this can wait until version 2.
