    Linux

    In Linux, the GNU linker provides an -rpath flag that hard codes library search paths into executables. We use this flag for all native executables, such as TestCLI and TestSoarPerformance. These paths are set assuming that the executables and required libraries (specifically libSoar.so) reside in the same directory, which is the default...
