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
All tests successful.
