[flang-dev] Porting F18 tests to use LLVM lit

Hi Stephen,

I don’t see any issue with choosing test names, I can confer if you like but the naming of the existing tests have never come into question before, so I doubt anyone would have any particular preferences. They’re in a separate folder, so make sure the test name isn’t used in the existing tests, then I can’t imagine any problems arising.

And yes, when all tests are successfully ported, ‘test’ will be removed, and ‘test-lit’ will be renamed to ‘test’ taking its place, and the appropriate changes needed to incorporate this into make check-all will be needed as well, but should just be as simple as renaming again.

Hi Luke,

During the transition, when writing a lit test, are there any special guidelines beyond choosing a distinct test name?

After the final step of removing old tests, will you rename the test-lit directory to test?

Thanks for working on this!

    This sounds very reasonable.

    Did you look at the llvm/utils/update_XXX_test_checks.py scripts? We
    might want to add a scripts there if we can generate, not port, the
    CHECK lines.
