While your advice for when to write tests seems spot on—before writing (much) code, and when bugs are found—your advice for when not to write them seems suspect. Even when a complete, working application is in place, it's appropriate to buttress it with tests—they will help with maintenance, so that changes can be seen not to break existing behaviour, and, well, testing, perhaps revealing that an application that seemed to be both complete and working is neither. Since writing tests, especially in Perl, can be very cheap, and need not be done all at once, it seems harmless at worst.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
