Re: my setup

I've been looking to newlib's and gcc's examples but I'm not getting it.
They always talk about a .x file (driver) and I don't know what is this. Anyone can help?

@Baurzhan: You told me that I can make a my_spawn procedure to do what I want like compile and execute the testcases. Do you have something similar? How do you do it? It's not the final way but can be another step in understanding all this..

Thanks in advance.

Yes. Although if the directory is already configured, autotools would
re-run whatever necessary automatically.

Dejagnu detects subdirectories and runs *.exp in them. You can write
my_spawn so that it finds the test cases, compiles, and executes them; I
am not aware of any procedure that already does that, although I suspect
looking at gcc's or gdb's test suite could help. If you find a way,
please share it, I need it, too :) .
