Test driven development with Perl and vim
Some more hacking around gives me this. The important change is no more dependency on errors.err. Instead, we use vim's own shell-out buffers, which are better. Plus, the old perl -wc wasn't working for me. And, this is also faster than using system() and gives immediate results, which is nice when you're waiting for 20+ testfiles to run. :-)
function! Prove ( verbose, taint )
if ! exists("g:testfile")
let g:testfile = "t/*.t"
if g:testfile == "t/*.t" || g:testfile =~ "\.t$"
let s:params = "l"
let s:params = s:params . "v"
let s:params = s:params . "Tt"
execute "!prove -" . s:params . " " . g:testfile
call Compile ()
function! Compile ()
if ! exists("g:compilefile")
let g:compilefile = expand("%")
execute "!perl -wc -Ilib " . g:compilefile

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
