Re: [AMBER-Developers] release plans

5 EVB tests still fail on Cygwin due to the stack size and lack of an
'unlimit' command. I have modified the test cases in question so that they
check that the stack was actually resized before running. Attached is a
patch that can be run in the $AMBERHOME/test directory to modify the tests.
The modification to each test is this:

-unlimit stack
+limit stacksize unlimited
+set STACK=`limit stacksize | awk '{print $2}'`
+if (! $?STACK || $STACK != "unlimited" || $STACK == "" ) then
+ echo "This test requires a larger stack size. Exiting."
+ exit(0)


PS - Note for future releases: we could keep track of tests that don't run
(and why) in addition to failures and errors.
