ANSI and RBMM
For some reason I really enjoy running the testsuite I have been putting together for my research into region based memory management (RBMM). Maybe it's the awesome color, maybe it's the satisfaction it is reporting 100% success rate. But either way, I must not mislead myself. The pass/fail check the testrig checks is the number of region creations minus the number of region deletions. Those values should balance at the end of the each test-program execution. This, is not testing all of the features of region merging and region variable passing. But creation-deletion is a rough metric, but good for a base test. This isn't at full resolution, but you get the idea, let your brain do the interpolation.
