#811 new defect

PCUT should not prefix test case identifiers with "test_"

Declaring something like

int test_foo;


fails to compile because foo is mangled to test_foo. Perhaps test case identifiers should be mangled to something that the programmer is less likely to use accidentally, such as _test_ or _pcut_, for example.

I don't see why that matters. Test case names are decorative only and in the unlikely case there is a conflict, you can just rename the testcase. Also, since PCUT is maintained in its own repo, this issue should be taken there.

It happened to me several times so it's not unlikely. The fact that you can work around it does not mean it should not be fixed.

I created issue on Github

This was fixed in PCUT upstream, but PCUT in HelenOS needs updating.
