Hi David,

To follow my old promise, I've just checked in a bit of documentation on how to run the test suite, including on Win32. I've also added a few self-test in the test module, so that the most obvious setup mistakes are notified to the user.

Here is the documentation, directly from the Subversion repository : <>

This should eventually be converted to TeX and integrated into the real documentation, but for various reasons this way is the quickest way to put it online. It's much better than the previous README file anyway (it was basically saying "keep out unless you know what you're doing" ;).

Hope this helps.

Thanks Nicolas, that was quick :-)

OK Now I know I'm following the correct procedure ...

At first all the tests failed... then I realised this was because I was running it off a shared drive that the service didn't have access to as it runs under a different account, so it simply fails to start with no error messages... (Hmmm, sure I've done this before...)

After switching to a local drive, all tests pass! Hurray! This was on my own built version, so the build process works nicely too...

So +1 for me on the already-released 3.2.5b on win32, and I should be able to run tests in the future
