Re: QMTest and the G++ testsuite

What if the test consists of a number of steps.  In GDB, a larger of
features are tested using a single program, built out of a single
source file.  This is particularly important because uploading a
program to a board is very often extremely slow, so you don't want to
artificially increase the number of programs you have to upload.
OTOH, you want separate results for each of the features tested in the
testcase.  How can you do this with QMTest?

But IIUC the final result will be a single PASS or FAIL, which is not
all that useful.
