Subject: [Boost-users] Boost Test thread safety
From: Dan Field (dan.field_at_[hidden])

Hi folks:


I'm trying to identify whether or not the boost Test library is thread safe
in the sense that multiple threads can simultaneously interact with the
library's various macros and API. I'm more interested in a single test being
multi-threaded than being able to run multiple test cases simultaneously.


In early documentation of the Test library (version 1.58.0 and before) ,
there's a section in the introduction called "Open issues" that indicates
that the library is not thread-safe. However, the documentation after 1.58.0
was substantially re-written, and I don't see any discussion regarding
thread safety at all.


The question remains. is the Test library thread-safe or not? If there is a
definitive statement regarding this issue, please let me know.


Thanks in advance!
