When I want to test that a subroutine is now in my namespace, I check that the subroutine isn't yet defined, do the import, then check that the subroutine is defined:
or if I care about testing the import method because I'm doing something tricky:
If you're relying on %EXPORT_TAGS and what to make sure it exports everything it is supposed to (meaning, most likely, that you told it to export the right things, you can look in %EXPORT_TAGS and see if each of those things are now defined in your current namespace. That can be a bit messy though.
Generally, I like to give each function its own test file, where I do extensive testing on it. If it should be in the :all tag, I'll test that it is exported just like I did in my code example. I don't worry about testing the the :all tag in a single test. I let the individual subroutine tests figure that out.
