in thread "Accessors break encapsulation"?

adrianh, have you found some good material on TDD in Perl? I'm finding TDD, so far, only slightly less painful than debugging :-) . (Though I just received Kent Beck's book today, so maybe I'll pick up some wisdom there.)

    There's not a huge amount available specifically on developing perl in a TDD manner. There's Rob Nagler's Extreme Perl, Peter Scott talks about it a little in Perl Medic and I believe that there's a bit on TDD in TheDamian's new book.

    But really there is nothing language-specific about TDD so I'd recommend reading Kent's book and taking it from there.

      But developing in TDD is so slow. Even a "56k" modem would be much better. But I'm glad I can develop via DSL.

    You surely will. It's an excellent book!

    IIRC, it's one of those books with an actually ejoyable foreword that leaves you eager to continue reading. That itself is rare.
