It's not to much.

Look at gcc and glibc, those take as much time to test then to build them.

    Or perl itself for that matter. On my machine it takes only a few minutes to build the Perl interpreter, but at least 20 minutes to run the tests.

    XML::Simpler does not require XML::Parser or a SAX parser. It does require File::Slurp.
    -- grantm, perldoc XML::Simpler

      It once took me two days to run configure for Perl, 10 minutes to compile, and another day for the tests. :-)

[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
[choroba]: it's a long running test, so it's normally skipped unless an env var is set
[choroba]: nobody has been bothered to set the variable in the last 3 years
[marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
[choroba]: or nobody bothered...
