NAME

       aetest - test results file format

DESCRIPTION

       The default configuration of the test_command and development_test_
       command commands of the project config file (see aepconf(5) for more
       information) is for the test commands to test a single test file and a
       single architecture at a time.  On some systems, this is not efficient.

       When configured to run multiple simultaneous tests, or multiple
       simultaneous architectures, a file of the format described here is used
       to communicate the test results back to Aegis.

CONTENTS

       Use a separate row for each unique filename and architecture
       combination.

       test_result = [ { ... } ];
               All the fields are mandatory.

               file_name = string;
                       This is the name of the file being tested.  Use the
                       same filename as was given to the test command.

               exit_status = integer;
                       This is the exit status returned by the test.

               architecture = string;
                       This is the architecture which the test was run on.
                       Defaults to the architecture of the current system if
                       not set.  (Try to avoid setting this field unless you
                       have a very clever multi-architecture test system.)
