No, because the correct answers are hardcoded into the file.

I'm confused: how can you know the correct answers in advance in one
case, but not in the other?

I think we are talking cross purposes. I do not want to display all the output, I want to know what it should be. And I don't care about the output from things that work as expected only things that do not. All of this is what ert is designed for. I might like to tweak the output a little, but as ert doesn't have a pluggable interface, that's harder.

Of course, I could write this functionality again. But it looks like a test to me. Why not use ert?
