> You might be thinking `test.src` which is the path to the test source. These properties are always easy to get mixed up but there is a good table in the jtreg tag language spec [1].  In any case, I don't think jtreg sets test.dir (at least I can't see it) but it's useful to set on the command-line when running the tests outside of the test harness, I think that is what Brian is doing here.

Yes you are right, I was thinking of test.src.  Thanks for pointing out the updated tag info.  Nice and easy to read.
