Currently some of the output files are different - even if the outputs do not change. In particular
- x.eclxml.log the last line containing some stats differs
- x.eclxml.xml any statistics have timestamps which differ
Much better would be an eclcc option to
i) not output a summary to the log
ii) remove all stats from the workunit
iii) generate a separate x.eclxml.stats file that contained all the stats.
It would potentially save me 5 or 10 minutes each time I run the regression suite since a first pass binary compare would generally be enough. Especially when checking for regressions.
