I asked rainbowsally to package up all mods to date the FLTK2 test files into a single STR as a tar file. (instead of as separate fixes that went to fltk.bugs over the last few weeks)

Apparently many of the test programs were broken or written in FLTK1 style, so the tar file is an accumulation of fixes/ports.

I should add that I fixed about a dozen of the test files but have still not gotten the themes working because they are missing parts that can't be guessed at.

Essai plugin almost works though.  At least fluid can find it, though it seems brain-damaged, so fluid and essai will need to share the fluid base code, and the FLTK way to deal with that would be to make a library of common code which will consist of -- basically everything in fluid except the fluid.cxx file itself.  And even one function from that one.

So the tests now all work except one (multi_image) which I still can't guess at, even though it has all the files.  (I also think it uses a non-standard call to "set_image_library_path" or something, that I changed from a pointer to an array of chars, and blah, blah blah.

But the test files, IF the makefile is fixed (which I have no control over) should now all work except that one.

Compile them and count the new files (that have no extension).  Those were so broken they wouldn't even compile, straight out of the box!

In fact none of the would.  The Makefile was broken.

Note that FLTK 2 was never released, it's a dev version that was far along, but was still in dev when it went dormant. So expect to find things like test programs broken; those were probably going to be the last to be fixed, because IIRC the API was the main thing being worked on.

To move forward, this STR would probably be a good place to post patches to fix whatever's wrong with the test program's Makefile.
