Ah, thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. It has been a couple of
years since I last created CMakeList.txt . I think I would need a refresh
of this part of my memory - it wasn't thaaaat hard as the automake stuff.
From what I understood the test suite can be used prior to installation and
this would be handy in the case I have.
The tests included are idiotic, as there is no single non ascii char in
them - but perhaps utf was on non of the devices 10-15 years ago.

I think one has to first have the binary and test material in the right
place and do the testing after this, but cmake requires directory different
than project root. There might be also something in Fat-Zers statement.
Ufff - anyway - thanks for the hint.

New query:
1. Is there a good way to convert the into CMakeList.txt?
2. Is there an alternative way to test the library with the function of
interest without installing it?

I lack time and experience for this specific case.

BTW I just pulled tdelibs from git and got all recent fixes - it works
great. Thanks for the regex on the datetime issue - it's also very nice.
