Follow-up Comment #24, bug #41298 (project octave):

Hold on, can you explain something to me?

If you look in Octave's libinterp/corefcn/ellipj.cc-tst, that file contains
both %!test and %!demo blocks. I believe that this bug, about extracting
tests, should extract all lines that begin with "$!" into the -tst files, just
like Octave.

Now if the file contains both %!test and %!demo blocks, running "pkg test"
should normally only run the %!test blocks, not the %!demo blocks. This is the
normal way of operating on tests and shouldn't be different in bug #41215,
which is why I brought it up there.

1. I think "-tst" files _should_ contain %!demo blocks.

2. I think "pkg test foo" _should not_ run %!demo blocks by default. Maybe
with an option, just like "test line" vs "test line verbose". That could be a
future enhancement.
