in thread What goes in a test suite?

I always have a window open that sits there doing a make test every time any file in my project changes.

how do you do this?

    I have this sitting in my ~/bin
    #! /usr/bin/perl -w # onchange file ... command # run command if any of the given files/directories # change use strict; use warnings; use File::Find; use Digest::MD5; my $Command = pop @ARGV; my $Files = [@ARGV]; my $Last_digest = ''; sub has_changed { my $files = shift; my $ctx = Digest::MD5->new; find(sub {$ctx->add($File::Find::name, (stat($_))[9])}, grep { +-e $_} @$files); my $digest = $ctx->digest; my $has_changed = $digest ne $Last_digest; $Last_digest = $digest; return($has_changed); }; while (1) { system($Command) if has_changed($Files); sleep 1; };

    I have this in my .cshrc

    alias testwatch "onchange Makefile.PL Makefile */*.pod */*.pm *.pm t t +est.pl 'clear; make test \!*'"

    I then type % testwatch or % testwatch TEST_VERBOSE=1 in the root directory of any module I'm messing with. This won't work 100% of the time but hits that 80/20 spot for me.

    I have a little todo list on an improved test monitor that I will, when some of that mythical free time comes along, implement. Now we have the lovely Test::Harness::Straps it's not even that difficult.
