Rather than put an example in VTK/Examples, shouldn't you put it in one of the testing directories? That way it would be an actual regression test. You would know that the example compiles and runs.

2) Marcus - I've brought up regression testing the examples many
times. I think there are two ways to go:

to prominently display "See VTK/Examples for many examples!" on the

could even start these on an SVN server?)
Bill and I continue to clean up the examples so they meet VTK coding
standards/practices, but it would be some good motivation if when they
are "ready" they could be moved into a regression testing framework.
This is necessary to ensure they live on as the project evolves.
What do you guys think about either of these?
