in reply to TODO blocks for Test::XML, and in general

Can you add the actual output and what you expect the output to be? For example, on my machine, I get:

#$ perl -MTest::More -e 'plan "no_plan";TODO:{local $TODO="foo bar"; f +ail("blog");}' not ok 1 - blog # TODO foo bar # Failed (TODO) test 'blog' # at -e line 1. 1..1

This is a valid TODO test (and a harness would mark the test suite as passed, even though it looks like it has failed). I don't have Test::XML::XPath installed, so just in case this is more of a case of improper expectations, pasting what you are seeing might help.

    I updated it. Running with prove shows that the test causes the entire test suite to fail.

      Stupid question, but does my snippet above emit a TODO test?

      I also rebuilt the like_xpath routine after removing the lines making use of the XPath parser (see below). What output do you get from it?

      use strict; use warnings; use Carp; use Test::More; use Test::Builder; sub like_xpath { my ($input, $statement, $test_name) = @_; die "usage: like_xpath(xml,xpath[,name])" unless $input && $statement; my $Test = Test::Builder->new; my $ok = eval { # Hardcode a failure return 0; }; if ($@) { $Test->ok( 0, $test_name ); $Test->diag( " Parse Failure: $@" ); return 0; } else { ok( $ok, $test_name ); unless ( $ok ) { diag ( " input: $input" ); diag ( " does not match: $statement" ); } return $ok; } } plan tests=>1; TODO: { local $TODO = 'testing todo block'; like_xpath('<xml-bad/>', '/xml', 'test test'); }


        Your snippet and your edited version both result in TODO tests, and a passing grade for the test suite. Don't know why...
