hi Stew,

No problemo.  BTW, please make sure you fill out the appropriate problem
report form (PRF), which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO.  Make sure to include this information
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers

Sure - please check out ACE_ROOT/tests/README, which says:

"By default, all the output from the tests will be stored in separate
files in the ./log/ (or .\log\) directory.  However, you can override
this by setting the ACE_TEST_DIR environment variable to another

This file also explains how to run the tests: 

"The tests can be executed in a single pass via the perl script
