BitterSuite C Language Documentation

The C tests work in two stages. Any required files are compiled to object files and then linked together to form an executable. This program is then run with the given command-line parameters and input file at each test; this means that making the test file customizable can limit the amount of required compilation.

C testing operates solely via I/O; all test marking is deferred for handling by the appropriate output-diffing command.
