in reply to Redirect output of Test::More/Simple


Test::More->builder->output ('result.txt');

to have Test::More put it's output in a file called 'result.txt' and:

Test::More->builder->failure_output ('errors.txt');

to redirect error output to 'errors.txt'. See the Test::More section 'Extending and Embedding Test::More' and Test::Builder for more information.

    It seems to me that it's a bit too hidden for such a needed feature. I'm not a Perl newbie and even have experience with Test::More and I found it difficult to locate in the docs.

    Besides the most trivial cases, lots of tests usually run autonomously, and generate copious amounts of output which is best contained in a log file.

    I guess another solution in such cases is Test::Harness, which IIRC allows redirection of output from test scripts it runs.
