How to run binaries directly rather than via ctest

The recommended way to run test suite binaries is via ctest. See the CmakeBuildGuide for more information. This information assumes you are using a build directory BUILD_DIR, and that you have created a binary by first running cmake and then building a target using make.

Binaries for each component are created in


regardless of any directory structure within the component itself. For instance, let us assume you have built the mesh component and wish to run the test suite /mesh/test/writer/TestMeshWriters.hpp. The binary will be found at
