Hi Nicolas,

I'm sorry if this has been asked yet again. I browsed the archived and could not find the answer. 

I'm trying to run the Geometry libs tests suite to verify an invalid? geometry I have. I added it as an additional testcase (r34) but have failed to trigger the test suite. (I have never before used JamFiles)

As a background note: I'm testing in boost because Mysql 5.7 is declaring this geometry as invalid, and it defers the validation to the boost libs. I'm trying to track down what is exactly wrong with the geometry. 

I attach the geometry in question if anyone is curious.  

You have to setup Boost (bootstrap + b2 headers) and then run b2 passing the directory containing tests e.g. go to libs/geometry directory and run:
../../b2 test
../../b2 test/algorithms

You can also pass some options like:

../../b2 toolset=msvc-14.0 --abbreviate-paths cxxflags="\wd4244 \wd4996" -j4 test/algorithms

which will run only algorithms tests on 4 threads with msvc-14 and compiler options disabling warnings.

But I'm curious, why not prepare a simple test file loading WKT with bg::read_wkt() and calling bg::is_valid() and run it by yourself with choosen compiler?
