Ticket #1502 (closed bug: invalid)
Test that "make corevm" works as expected
|Reported by:||dukeleto||Owned by:|
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
