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.

[shmem]: Discipulus: readdir has the same semantics as readline (a.k.a <>). Have another coffee ☕ ;-)
[Discipulus]: ah! just with my old system perl (5.8.8) was needed
[Corion]: Has anybody toyed around with Mastodon? There is a Perl module for it, but I'm not sure that it's a yak worth chasing
[Corion]: On the upside, maybe running that for my family would be interesting, or at least for myself
[Corion]: I'm not fond of using a server hosted by other people, even if they claim to be GNU ;)
