Topic: test quick failure

I'd love that, too. I don't think it exists

(I saw this and said "wait, surely that's not true; surely we have a --fail-fast or --max-errors or something ... but from reviewing compiletest --help, it does not seem to exist...)

turning --quiet mode off might help, at least in terms of letting you see for yourself which test is actually failling?

Maybe a long sleep + bell sound + UI notification script to be executed -on-fail :)

pnkfelix (Mar 17 2020 at 19:41, on Zulip):

the --on-fail only works at the granularity of's tests, not within individual compiletest suites, right?

pnkfelix (Mar 17 2020 at 19:41, on Zulip):

(because already fails fast by default; the problem is that the src/test/ui suite is huge.)

lqd (Mar 17 2020 at 20:26, on Zulip):

I don't really know, --on-fail doesn't work locally for me

you want to use --pass check btw when running UI tests; otherwise you're testing the runtime stuff as well
