Re: [PATCH v2 ptest-runner 2/2] main: Do not return number of failed tests when calling ptest-runner

?ukasz Majewski

Hi Anibal,

Up till now ptest-runner2 returns number of failed tests with its
exit status code. Such use case is not recommended [1] and may cause
issues when there are more than 256 tests to be executed.

To alleviate this issue the number of total tests with number of
failed ones is printed before exit. To be more specific - failure of
tests (one or more) causes ptest-runner to provide exit code of 1.

One can test this change with executing:
./ptest-runner -d tests/data fail
Gentle ping on this patch.

Changes for v2:
- When number of failed tests is N, the ptest-runner returns value of
1 to indicate error in the execution
