Oooh! Very cool!..

I wrapped the part of the main body that runs stuff into a sub run() and then I have a line such as (in bin/script).. (pseudocode follows..)

#!/usr/bin/perl caller() or run(); sub run { print do_stuff_1(); print do_stuff_2(); } sub do_stuff_1 { 1 } sub do_stuff_2 { 2 } 1;
Then in t/00.t
use Test::Simple 'no_plan'; require 'bin/script'; ok( do_stuff_1(), 'do_stuff_1()' );
Thank you! This is a wonderful solution. (Maybe someone has another (more elegant, less intrusive?) way to do this?)

    Maybe not more elegant but the name "main" instead of "run" would be a more common convention. Actually google found this exact example here, putting a package name at the top, and calling
    __PACKAGE__->main() unless caller();
