Hello all,

Are there any example/docs of how to use the testing.jam stuff? (in
particular rule compile and rule run)
I have the following jamfile:

import testing ;

PROJECT_NAME = hello ;

project $(PROJECT_NAME)
    : default-build debug
    : build-dir $(OUTPUT_DIR)/$(PROJECT_NAME)

exe $(PROJECT_NAME) : hello.cpp ;

install $(BUILD_DIR) : $(PROJECT_NAME)
                     : <install-dependencies>on <install-type>EXE

I'd like to add some compile and run tests at the end, but I've no idea how
to do so...
I've managed to do

unit-test foo
        : $(PROJECT_NAME)

Which works fine and produces foo.passed, but I read that unit-test was
supported for historical reasons...
I'd like to get compile and run working if possible.
