Effective Perl Programming, 2d ed ISBN 9780321496942, published in 2010, has a chapter on testing. It is not a tutorial on basic test techniques. It includes several multi-page examples; and covers topics such as mock objects, test-driven development, and a continuous build system.

Perl Medic, Transforming Legacy Code ISBN 9780201795264 from 2004, also has a chapter on testing. It provides short introductions to several Test:: modules; and a detailed description of how to build real test code with a well-written 15-page example.

[Discipulus]: good morning monks!
[marto]: Corion, I've been better, but things are improving in many cases :) Simply not enough time/rest :)
[Corion]: Hi Discipulus!
[marto]: hopefully you guys are also well :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - I'm looking for a week off in a week, even if it'll be a trip to Amsterdam ;)
[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
