Subject: Re: [MTT devel] Best way to run ftb_database_server and ftb_agent

Josh, I have another question.
How can mtt find the script to run?
>> exec = ./run-cr-correctness.pl -test ...

I can write a similar script like run-correctness.pl but if I put my script(e.g., run-ftb-tests.pl) to ftb-tests/iu/ftt/ftb/, how can I make mtt recognize this path and file?

Regards,
