Marking failing tests as TODO by number

Description: Sometimes when writing tests, some tests may fail. You can mark these tests as TODO with Test::More, but this is only convenient for a single range of tests.

Sometimes a few tests may fail inside a set of nested loops. But marking them in the flow of the program is very complicated.

This little sub allows you to specify which tests are supposed to fail, specified by test number and reason for the failure. For example:

my %todo = ( 1023 => "d f g still fails, but it's not that important", 1567 => 'yikes, we need to fix this one!', ); foreach my $foo (@foo) { foreach my $bar (@bar) { foreach my $car (@car) { todo_some( \%todo,\&ok,func($foo,$bar,$car),"check result +of function" ); } } }
=head2 todo_some

Execute given test subroutine while setting $TODO flag for given
test numbers.

  IN: 1 hash reference, with testnumber / reason strings pairs
      2 reference to subroutine to execute test
      3..N parameters to pass to test subroutine
 OUT: 1 whatever test sub returns


my $Test = Test::Builder->new; # so we don't need to do it over and ov
+er again
sub todo_some {
    local $TODO = shift->{$Test->current_test + 1} || '';
    no strict 'subs';
    my $sub = shift;
    $sub->( @_ );
} #todo_some
