Boost Testing :

(may be this is a duplicate post, but at the first attempt I discovered I
was not subscribed to this list yet)

I see this is quite an old thread, however, I just finished porting some
parts of the boost libraries (thread, serialization, filesystem, asio,
date_time, regex, and some other header only libs) to Windows CE, thus, I
would like to try to run the tests for this platform (Windows CE, ARM
processor, Compiler Visual C++ 8.0, Microsoft Windows Mobile SDK, stlport).
There has been some progress in creating the script cited in this
thread. Or is anyone aware of some way to run the tests under WinCE?
