The only way I could think that you could do this without making code
modifications to ctest would be to run your whole test suite itself *as* a
You could run it like this:
ctest -R "^WholeTestSuite$"
(which would run *just* the WholeTestSuite)
And then the test for running WholeTestSuite would turn around and run:
ctest -E "^WholeTestSuite$"
(which would run all the tests *except* the WholeTestSuite)
Then on the WholeTestSuite test, you could set a per-test timeout to
whatever value makes sense (independent of the overall ctest timeout value).
Or.... if you have time and ability, it should be fairly straightforward to
make the appropriate modifications to ctest source code and submit it as a
patch/feature-request to the bug tracker.
