in reply to Regression test with nested data structures -- Or how to use Test::Deep?

I haven't tried this myself, but looking at the docs, another possibility would be to use num($number, $tolerance) to test the time field. If you set the time tolerance wide enough, then you should be able to pass a test on that field without having to pre-filter the hash and remove the timestamp key.

    Thanks, interesting option! :)

    But I fear using a fixed time tolerace is a good possibility to produce tests which fail occasionally...

[GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
[MidLifeXis]: On the back end, however, that doesn't mean that i have to use that value to indicate "undefined", no matter how much he thinks I should.
