I don't think anyone is advocating writing tests for one-time data conversion scripts. Certainly I am not.

I think you've confused all the things that you think I said into newer meta-things that I haven't said.

Rule 6, "Testing will go on as long as it has to." only matters if you're optimizing. If you're not optimizing (or any sort of refactoring) that data conversion script, then no testing need take place.

[ambrus]: No, I think the timers are handled fine in the event loop, as far as I can see.
[Corion]: So far, I liked Prima quite well as it simply seems to do what I want even if it has an upside-down coordinate system. But it installs from CPAN out of the box and is cross-platform
[ambrus]: Corion: which coordinate system is the upside down one?
[Corion]: ambrus: "the other" ;) To me, "normal" for GUIs means (0,0) is left-upper corner of the monitor/window. But for Prima, the lower-left corner it is ;)
[Corion]: Which would be OK for mathematics and paper, for me ;)
