Dear mailing list members,

Is there a tool to use for CTest testing as incorporated in the VTK-Journal of 
new vtkFilters with vtkPolyData output?
There is Image Compare for images (http://www.vtkjournal.org/help/submission) 
but I could not find any examples for the testing of filters producing vtkPolyData.
Instead of providing an expected output image I'd want to provide an expected 
output vtk-file for the test in the VTK-Journal. Would 
(http://www.vtkjournal.org/browse/publication/839) be a good choice for such 
comparison instead of just comparing number of Points and Cells?

Where can I find some general instructions on how to design tests for 
contributions of filters for the VTK-Journal? E.g. how to set up the section in 
CMakeLists.txt with varying test parameters?

Thanks for any help or hints.
