Prevents the auto generation of the test module initialization functions. This macro is particularly relevant for manually registered tests in conjunction with dynamic variant of the Unit Test Framework. When defined, a main function registering all the tests should be implemented.

An example of a module initialization would be

#include <boost/test/unit_test.hpp>

// a function in another compilation unit registering tests under the master test suite.
void register_some_tests_manually(test_suite* test);

bool registering_all_tests()
  test_suite* test_master_suite = &boost::unit_test::framework::master_test_suite();

  // register any other tests function or test suite to the master test suite
  // ...
  return true;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
  return ::boost::unit_test::unit_test_main(&registering_all_tests, argc, argv);
