in reply to Regression test with nested data structures -- Or how to use Test::Deep?

I haven't tried this myself, but looking at the docs, another possibility would be to use num($number, $tolerance) to test the time field. If you set the time tolerance wide enough, then you should be able to pass a test on that field without having to pre-filter the hash and remove the timestamp key.

    Thanks, interesting option! :)

    But I fear using a fixed time tolerace is a good possibility to produce tests which fail occasionally...
