Actually it is defined in Run -> Run Parameters ... -> Host application

How to create an automatic test program for it?
There are no general rules to do such thing.


Not really related to this question but maybe 2 years ago Lazarus
still allowed to "run" a library project.
It was a bug, the library binary was treated like any program binary
and it crashed of course.
It is fixed now.
