How do you compare the results of running the same compiler on Linux and QNX? Do you just eyeball the report on the website, or do you use a script to compare the test results on the filesystem?
Thanks and regards,

My runners use gcc 4.4(.2) (in gnu++0x mode) on QNX, and it's useful to be able to compare to the same compiler running on Linux. I'm sure it's the same for other non-Linux environments such as MinGW. Currently there are other runners that match my compiler configuration better than yours do, but you get the idea.
