Why Does Test::Deep Kill Test::Class

Ovid has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

You know, this has been a terrible birthday so far. Bugs, bugs, bugs. The latest one has me pulling my hair out, but I don't know why. Test::Deep and Test::Class don't play well together. Here's the smallest test case I can get.

package TestIt; use Test::Deep; use base 'Test::Class'; sub startup : Tests(startup) {} 1;

Trying to compile that results in:

Invalid CODE attribute: Tests(startup => 1) at TestIt.pm line 9 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at TestIt.pm line 9.

I've gone nuts trying to debug this. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Ovid

    Don't use base? This does not complain:

    package TestIt; use Test::Deep; use Test::Class; BEGIN { @TestIt::ISA = ( 'Test::Class' ) } #use base 'Test::Class'; sub startup : Tests(startup) { }

    Because Test::Deep exports something that conflicts with the attribute handler, so
    use Test::Deep();

    This was covered before (first hit on google for Test::Deep Test::Class BTW :).

    Not sure if Adrian did something to change Test::Class but the latest version of Test::Deep does some magic to make isa() just work. Have you tried the latest versions?

      Sheesh. I was checking RT bugs and Changelogs, but somehow didn't think about Google :)

      Updating Test::Deep solved this. Thanks. (Whew!)

      What a painfully long day this is.

      Cheers,

        This and some other stuff are the root of my hatred of default exports (and the lack of a nice way to use things without exports at all).
