    initial v2  
    1 It would be very useful to be able to compare results from previous runs as I could before ...  
     1This feature writes results for each regression test run into a directory named {{{regress/results/<timestamp>}}} and creates a symlink to it called {{{regress/results/latest}}}, and the previous {{{latest/}}} is renamed to {{{last/}}}. 
     2 
     3The results directory holds, for each test:   
     4  * whatever auxiliary output files LHC writes (depending on the flags), including .grin, .c, and executable files 
     5  * a .lhc_out file into which lhc's stdout is redirected 
     6  * .stdout and .stderr files of execution output 
     7 
     8Optionally, the .ho files for the test suite are stored in the {{{ho}}} subdirectory of the results directory. (The other choice is that they are stored in {{{results/ho}}}.) 
     9 
     10There is also top-level log.txt file containing a copy of the output of regress.pl: basically, whether each test passed or how it failed, it's compile time, and it's run time. (Haven't seen it lately, though.)
