in reply to How to do automated tests of a database centric CPAN module

Test::postgresql can setup a temporary PostgreSQL database for testing.

Unfortunately it is not very well maintained, I have my own patched version on GitHub and, IIRC, there were other forks.

    Now that's interesting, I have not looked for temp PostgreSQL database creation since I would not have expected this to exist.

    I would like to include tests using Test::postgresql besides the tests against in-memory SQLite (in case no other database has been specified, see my other posts). I hope the non-patched version works for me since my module would obviously need to reference something on CPAN. Thank you for pointing to your patched version on GitHub.

      I believe Test::Database serves a similar purpose (create/drop temp databases).

        If I understood the documentation correctly, only DBMSs available in the current environment can be instantiated by using Test::Database, so it would not help in the current situation, but please correct me if I am wrong.

[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
