Re: [xml] XPath Regression Fails on Win32 for libxml2-2.6.19

I'm trying to use these libraries (libxml2, libxslt and xmlsec) for a cross platform project that targets Mac and Win32. I'm also building them in four flavors, devel/single thread, devel/multi thread, release/single thread, and release/multi thread. I would feel better if I could run the regression tests on Win32 for all of the libraries, just like I can on the Mac or any other Unix platform. That being said, I understand that it takes a great deal of time and effort to make this happen.

Thank you for both of your replies. It sounds like we get the tests "for free" if the Python port gets finished, so I wish you the best of luck on that. :-)

Um, I wrote those a while ago while playing with windows cmd scripting to mimic
the *nix shell equivalents with the hope of having make tests run on win32

run those tests once, so no shock if it's broken.
I can't validate if those proposed changes are correct or not, it would be a
good exerciise to properly implement the existing regression test on win32, but
I rely on my own tests instead.  If someone cares about this they should speak
up, otherwise a disclaimer is perhaps in order, b/c to be honest I don't use
'em and the implementation certainly isn't maintained.

 William Brack also worked to recode them in python. With the availability
of the python bindings on Win32 (and lot of other platforms) this would allow a single layer for the regression tests, knowing that a number of
them already rely on Python. Finishing the port to Python might be a better
use of your time :-)
