This statement confuses me o bit. Couldn't you rephrase it?

In fact I meant "implement in Jamfile in bounds of existent

--save_pattern is the switch between match and save mode. In match
mode it perform matching vs. file content (i.e. real testing). While
in save mode it store strings into file for further use for
matching. This way I may check that output is the same as it was
before (i.e. correct)
However, if test is failing I would like to know what output was
produced in fact. It would help me to find the source of error.
