The question of how to generate terse output came up at today's telecon.

The Server Test Tool supports several "-report" switches for generating
various degrees/kinds of output - they are documented in
IppServerTestUserGuide.htm, which comes with the tool.

The IppTest.bat and IppTest95.bat batch files used at the Bake-Off are
wrappers that run the IppTest program with a hard-wired "-report verbose"
switch. To get less output, run the program "by hand" and omit the
"-report" switch (this is equivalent to saying "-report summary"). In the
output, you will see any mismatches, plus script annotations (lines in the
script beggining with "@").

To be even more terse, you can get rid of the annotations by specifying
"-report mismatches". This is not recommended, since the annotations
generally provide context for the the mismatches (ie, they identify the
particular test step being executed).
