[lsb-discuss] FYI on parsing something rather large...

In some private email with Stew/Jeff, I mentioned that I was giving the
Linux Application Checker a test (as well as some demos) here, and that
it was a rather large "byte" to chew on, since I just pointed it at the
top of our installation tree..

>That should be interesting to see how the appchecker performs when
tossed a huge app suite.

Well, the good news is that it worked!  Took a bit of time to consume it
all...Already giving me all sorts of useful feedback on things that our
developers (at least in this one unit) could do to improve things

Rather than upload the data - we aren't really ready for prime time -
here are the sizes from the results area...

Note: this is just feeding the tool the top level installation tree for
the release that contains the core of our digital simulator

Notice that the test_log.html is over 37M, and as you can guess, trying
to "navigate" or open up some of the different screens takes a bit of
time ;-)

My guess-timate is that it took about 2:45 min to run, since I started
it just before I left for the day, which would have been registered as
00:00 given the settings on this VM...Yes, this was running on Centos5.3
VM using VMWare Player on a Lenovo T61P laptop where I only gave the VM
about 768M of ram...

Once we do some better organization and I have anything more reasonable,
I'll look into seeing what I can officially release/upload.
