C TAP Harness 1.1

A while back, I felt like writing some code outside of any project I needed to be working on and picked something off the C TAP Harness to-do list. When running long test cases manually or with runtests -o, it's nice to see a summary at the end to know whether any test cases failed. This release adds exit handlers to the C and shell TAP libraries to print out such a summary on exit, provided that all test results are reported via the library calls.

This release also contains a couple of bug fixes, one for compatibility with Perl's Test::More when skipping all tests and one to drain all output from test cases that aborted to avoid spurious SIGPIPE.

With this release, Automake silent rule handling (new in 1.11) is now optionally enabled and turned on by default for make warnings. I love this. It makes it much easier to see the compiler output that I care about.

You can get the latest version from the C TAP Harness distribution page.
