Does that mean that you are going to modify SAAINT to run on this?


Yes, eventually.

I tried early on but there were some file-handling differences between the CMM2/MMB4L vs. the PicoMite and because I couldn't run my unit-test framework on the PicoMite to pin those down I instead parked the idea on the back-burner.

I'll revisit soon, hopefully the file-handling differences have *magically* vanished. If not then I'll have to make a decision between a one off, by-hand hack or of the more sustainable longterm process of getting my unit-test framework running (by transpiling tests on MMB4L and then running them remotely on the PicoMite).

Of course if I provided him with a transpiled but non-working version of SAAINT then Peter if so inclined would probably fix it in half an hour and tell me I was making a mountain out of a mole-hill, and he is probably correct.

Best wishes,
