This ultimately raised the issue of how to enforce testsuite and the

know of DejaGnu framework and the QMTest framework for running
testsuite.  I have far more extensive experience with DejaGnu than
with QMTest.  On the other hand, I'm pretty sure people would object
to DejaGnu for various reasons.
Sorry, I don't know any of them, but for the Algebra part it might be possible
to rewrite AldorUnit so that it could be used with Axiom and SPAD instead of

I could imagine that the rewrite should not be terribly hard.

I started to do it, no it doesn't seem to be hard. The main trouble is that we
would need to implement TextWriter, but that might be a good thing
anyway. Although I must say that I like OutputForm.

Unfortunately, the compiler segfaults over my modifications currently.

Why don't you open it then? Maybe Christian could also contribute. I don't see a repository.

BTW, which compiler segfaults?
Where you suggestion to use the Aldor compiler?

How would you see the big picture anyway? (How should AldorUnit/AxiomUnit work? How would input files look like? What would be generated? What would be compiled? What is a testsuite?)
