    • The final verdict makes sense -- 3 tests are skipped if Inline::C fails to build and bind the source code. (Which happens between test 12 and test 13.) Those nmake problems are from Inline itself. This is a great example of the limitations of PPM's -- you don't get to see any actual tests on your actual system.
