in thread The Joy of Test

gmax asked if there was a "ready-to-use idiom to make a test.pl script by assembling several small ones together?"

You can look at the documentation for Test::Harness. This module will allow you to run tests from several different sources and will return results based upon their output to STDOUT. Here's a script from the docs to have Test::Harness test itself, using all test scripts in the "t" directory.

$ cd ~/src/devel/Test-Harness $ perl -Mblib -e 'use Test::Harness qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t Using /home/schwern/src/devel/Test-Harness/blib t/base..............ok t/nonumbers.........ok t/ok................ok t/test-harness......ok All tests successful. Files=4, Tests=24, 2 wallclock secs ( 0.61 cusr + 0.41 csys = 1.02 C +PU)

    using all test scripts in the "t" directory.

    Actually as you can see from the header output:

    $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t <----

    only scripts named *.t will get run. This is usefull as you can stop a test script in the t/ dir running simply by renaming it say widget.test

    cheers
