Re: [vhdl-200x] Improved std.env package?

Hi Matthias,
That is what the "%%DONE" flag is for.  After
running a set of tests in batch, I do a unix/linux:
grep -i %%DONE sim.log

This extracts all of the completion messages.

I make sure that message that prints an error also
increments the error counter.  That way if the
completion message indicates Passed, then generally
there is nothing further to look at.

Also try "std.env.stop(0)" it is supposed to be somewhat
