    Programming is what I do; testing is probably more in my immediate reach.
      We're tracking the RPerl project using Trello, there's a basic check-list on a card named "Test Suite" on this board:

      https://trello.com/b/hQCPeg1d/austin-pm-rperl-development

      The in-process test is 05_type_hash.t, which is almost done and is modeled after the working 04_type_array.t. You can see the test file at Github here:

      https://github.com/wbraswell/rperl/blob/master/t/05_type_hash.t

      After the hash type test is done, then comes the OO inheritance test, the RPerl system functionality for which is already in place, and the basic testing code for which is already largely written in different places around the RPerl codebase.

      After the OO inheritance test comes the hand-compiled sorting test, and that's where my RPerl system functionality ends. I'm in the process of choosing a Perl 5 parser now, then comes the automated compiling process.

      Wanna help with some test writing? :)

[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
[shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
[Discipulus]: but if have case like subname(15,undef,3 ) maybe bettere named parameters
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
