Using Ulrich's shell pipeline as a starting point, I've added an ABI
comparison pass to my hacky autobuilder. It runs nightly and results are
being posted online:
at noon GMT (currently 8 AM on the east coast). The contents there now
are placeholder junk, so don't bother looking before Monday.
I'm testing it by adding a 50-integer array to the declaration of
std::nothrow_t. So tomorrow's log should show a "problem" when the
std::nothrow object has changed in size from 1 byte to 200. After verifying
that everything can work without human handholding, I'll fix the code back
and start getting real reports on Tuesday.
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
