// This file implements a typechecker test harness. The packages specified
// in tests are typechecked. Error messages reported by the typechecker are
// compared against the error messages expected in the test files.
// Expected errors are indicated in the test files by putting a comment
// of the form /* ERROR "rx" */ immediately following an offending token.
// The harness will verify that an error matching the regular expression
// rx is reported at that source position. Consecutive comments may be
// used to indicate multiple errors for the same token position.
// For instance, the following test file indicates that a "not declared"
// error should be reported for the undeclared variable x:
//	package p
//	func f() {
//		_ = x /* ERROR "not declared" */ + 1
//	}
