But I actually do step 3 on my PC, under linux. I tried the same before under
a popular operating system, but though working several hours, I did not
manage to start one application from within another one. There was a function
that worked, but it was called "deprecated" or so.
Step 3 would be to generate pascal sources. This generation has it's root in
the definition of the Pascal Language and would check every feature to a
certain degree, using "equivalence classes".
Step 3 includes checking if the compiler produces errors where it should
produce an error, and if it compiles where it should compile. The actual
output would be a bug list.
Only those cases where Step 3 is bug-free, would then be executed ..
