Also, if you are serious about testing an perl (and about testing in perl), then Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook(ISBN 9780596100926) is, IMO, a must.

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.

    I too have had a recent epiphany "must get serious about testing". So I bought this book too.</p.

    And I was left with "... but how do I get "there" from "here"??. Because it does tend to start with

    use YourMod::YourStuff;

    ... which is not very handy if you are not in a modularized position to begin with.

    I got a great tip from gabszab which suited my current situation (big monolithic CGI script), which was 'invoke the whole thing from your test and use cmp_ok ', but that's another subject (although it might help in our situation?).

    This signature will be ready by Christmas
