in thread TDD of non-module code

This is my first attempt at TDD in Perl. I'm using Test::Simple and nothing more complicated than ok.

The Test-Simple distribution includes the Test::More module - since you already have it installed, you might as well use it. For an example of how this will improve your life, consider this test:

ok(animal() eq 'monkey', 'animal() returned monkey')

Using the is function from Test::More the same test might be written like this:

is(animal(), 'monkey', 'check animal() return value')

The difference is that when your test fails, the diagnostic output will tell you what value was expected and what was actually received - making things much easier to debug.

Test::More has a number of handy functions like this which will save your time.

[LanX]: pryrt: yeah, that's why I didn't consider, but the last >10 anonymous posts are from the same troll-person
[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
[jdporter]: A: yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know how hard it will be to get out of that mess.
[LanX]: M-x untabify
[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
LanX thinks it is appropriate here :)
