5.5.5 Tests with Special Processing Requirements
Some tests may require special handling. These are
primarily SNA tests, but some core tests are affected. For example, distributed
processing tests may require an executable image in multiple partitions,
where partitions are constructed in an implementation specific manner.
Real-time processing tests may have configuration pragmas that have to
be handled in an implementation specific way. Numeric processing tests
require strict mode processing to be selected. Each such test has a Special
Requirements section in the test header describing any implementation
specific handling that is required for the test.
