Yeah TAP is horrible, for the reasons you describe.

I *think* in practice most tools will handle just "ok" / "not ok" without the
tests being numbered, but I don't know that for sure.


For the powerpc tests I'm using "subunit v1" [1], which is basically just:
  - "^success: <test name>"
  - "^failure: <test name>"

See: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/subunit.h

So I can do eg:

$ cd tools/testing/selftests/powerpc
$ make run_tests 2>&1 | subunit-1to2 | subunit-stats --no-passthrough
Total tests:      35
Passed tests:     31
Failed tests:      0
Skipped tests:     4
Seen tags: git_version:v4.0-rc7-0-gf22e6e8


But unfortunately TAP has a lot more traction with tools.

It wouldn't be too hard to convert the subunit stream into TAP I think, but for
some reason no one seems to have written that. Maybe we should, I just haven't
had time to do it.

cheers
