This is the SDK runtests script and not the CDT one, right?  It works
fine on Linux for running the SDK tests for me.
[jwp] Yes, the runtests script I started with was from the SDK. The
first 4 lines of the script were:

# !/bin/sh

#set the DISPLAY for running tests on Linux

The space between the # and the ! Caused a problem on my system. I use
csh and the space means the script is run as a csh, not /bin/sh as
intended. As a csh script, it produces a lot of errors. 

The `$HOST` causes an error since $HOST is the name of the system and is
not an executable command that produces output.

I wrote a runtests script for the CDT tests.  Perhaps we should
[jwp] The other responses to my questions (Vivian and Doug) are leading
me to other scripts that seem more useful.

Yeah, I've the same thing.  I haven't had time to track down why yet.

[jwp] Vivian suggests that the nightly script just runs tests in the
suites and maybe there are a lot of tests not in the suites. The
difference seems pretty large but maybe this is the problem. I would
think it would be highly desirable to have the nightly script run all of
the tests.

I'm not sure.
