========================================================================
Introduction
========================================================================

This project includes simple samples illustrating basic use of
Boost.Test:

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_38_0/libs/test/doc/html/index.html

The samples accompany the tutorial on alittlemadness.com:

========================================================================
Prerequisites
========================================================================

The samples assume a Un*x-like environment, and also require:

- a GNU-compatible make (for building)
- Boost 1.38.0 (possibly later versions, but they are not tested),
  installed in the system include and library paths.

========================================================================
Building and Running
========================================================================

To build the samples, run make:

$ make

This creates five binaries, one for each test sample file.  To
actually run the tests, use the `test' target:

$ make test

This will execute all of the binaries with arguments to make them
produce XML output, captured into report-*.xml files.

When you're done, your can remove all built files by cleaning:

$ make clean
