RE: Question about UnicodeData.txt data file


Is there anyway in the configure file to set the relative path to <.>
instead of the absolute path?

I know in the file srcdir can be changed but is there
a way to set this during configuration?

Out of the box, Mauve does what it does.  You can always write your
own test harness; we did that for libgcj testing.  You could subclass
SimpleTestHarness and rewrite getResourceStream or getSourceDirectory
to do whatever you like.  Or you can rewrite and recompile
it on each platform.  If you come up with a generically useful patch,
send it to the list.
