    [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...
    [choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
    [marinersk]: :: ducking ::
    [choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
    [marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
    [choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
    [choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
    [marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
    [choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
