Hi All,

This is mostly directed to hex, but anyone who has access to Windows 8 or 8.1, your generous help would be appreciated.

Hi hex,

I know you were using, or had access to, Windows 8 at one time and that you can build the interpreter yourself.  It would be a great help if you could check out the ooTest suite and run the suite against ooRexx 4.2.0, and provide the results.

You don't even need to build ooRexx 4.2.0 yourself.  Nightly Windows builds are now available on the build machine:


just look for the highest number, or latest date.

To get the correct version of the test suite, check out:

svn co svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/oorexx/code-0/test/trunk ooTest.4.x.ro

The above checks out the code into the directory:  ooTest.4.x.ro  The ro is for read only, for my information.  You can of course check it out into any directory name you want.

To run the test suite, if you have a working Windows compiler use:


i.e., just type testOORexx

You can use testOORexx --help to see all the options if you would like to play with it.

If you don't have a working Windows compiler, you need to exclude the native API tests.  Use this command line:

C:\work.ooRexx\wc\ooTest\ooTest.4.x.ro>testOORexx -X Native_api

As I said, I would really appreciate seeing the results of running the test suite on Windows 8 or 8.1 with ooRexx 4.2.0.  Any one that tries it and has trouble getting things set up, just reply here and I'll try to help.
