That is not what the test verifies, as I have repeatedly tried to
explain, and as the code clearly shows. I don't know how to explain
this more clearly. Perhaps if you take a look at the code again:
## Real SCCS fails on these inputs:-
test_bin fb10 "foo" # no newline at end of file.
test_ascii fa11 "x\000y\n" # ASCII NUL.
echo "Some tests skipped (since SCCS fails them but CSSC should pass)"
