Description (last modified by dukeleto) (diff)

It seems that often a refactor causes "make corevm" to build more than it should (like PGE). We need a test to verify that it works correctly, so this is caught early.

From #parrot on 6. March 2010:

19:28:26 <@dukeleto> we *reaaaaaaally* need a test that verifies that "make corevm" does what it is supposed to do
19:30:03 <@allison> dukeleto: difficult to test
19:31:36 <@dukeleto> allison: sure, but a worthy goal. the test would have to create a copy of the source tree and then verify that it is doing the right thing. not something 
                     that should be part of "make test", but I would say it would be good to have that in "make fulltest"
19:32:31 <@allison> duke: it could check a list of files that shouldn't exist after a "make realclean" and "make corevm"
19:32:37 <@dukeleto> every time "make corevm" breaks, you can hear a screeching halt of productivity from some devs that rely on it, like plobsing
19:32:42 <@dukeleto> allison: that is a nice idea

-1 on this from me. A lot of testing infrastructure required when just running these make targets more often after a realclean will catch the issue. (I'll modify my normal build script to do this.)

I'm going to reject this ticket. If we want to verify that "make corevm" works, the best way is to just run it.
