D.1 Compile-Time Inapplicability

The first part of this appendix is concerned with tests for which the applicability is determined at compile time. Class B tests that are inapplicable should be successfully compiled, or, in a few cases, should report an error on the line marked "--N/A => ERROR". Executable tests that are inapplicable based on their compile-time behavior must be rejected as a result of the unsupported feature. Lines containing the implementation-dependent features are marked "--N/A => ERROR". In every case, tests may be graded NOT-APPLICABLE only if all the following conditions are met:
The implementation's treatment of the test is consistent with the applicability criteria given in the test comments;
All other tests having the same applicability criteria exhibit the same behavior; and
The behavior is consistent with the implementation's documentation.
