Okay, back to this list then from kde-testing. I have at least tried. :)

Actually, yes. :-)

Yes, they can be run separately. I believe that is also my workflow
when a test fails. I run the desired binary in question to see which
test methods pass and fail to localize the issue further on. I think
"make test", and hence ctest, is a good and handy service after all in
my opinion. I am not worried about that, and it comes with cmake (at
least on the distributions I use).

Best Regards,

PS.: Plus what Alex said about other ctest usages.
