The current output looks like:
(boost-test "foo_test" : "libs/foo/test\foo_test.cpp" )
If you could add the test type ("run", "compile-fail", etc.) that would
cover the only killer requirement.
So the above sample might become:
(boost-test "run" "foo_test" : "libs/foo/test\foo_test.cpp" )
That's the only "must have".
Nice to have, but not essential, would be a way to pass a string from the
Jamfile to the "boost-test" output line.
We do this in the current setup by embedding the string in a comment:
# If the line with the test type includes the comment
# "# compiler_status<always_show_run_output>" then
# run output will be displayed even if the test passes.
Right now "always_show_run_output" is the only string recognized, but I
want to implement several other features that need a way to pass a string.
This would be nice, but isn't a showstopper.
