Is there any Perl helper, to help people start a module, which does things like:
$DB::single = 1; # Allows us to single step through testing
# If you need to define functions from the module, do that with a
# qw( ... ) after the quoted module name.
use_ok( '$ModuleName' ) or die;
diag( "Testing $ModuleName $ModuleName::VERSION" );
This is a stub test function, from which a person can build their
monolithic module, and then split the module into pieces if need be.
Put whatever code and data you are using to test this module as you
develop it below.
my $Pi = 4 * atan2( 1, 1 );
# And whatever other constant a person might need.
And I propose a name of z99.t, so that it runs last.
But this idea is that the various helpers (to start projects for people), give them a template in ./t/ where they can develop their module via testing. This seems to be something that people who develop software professionally prefer, but doesn't seem to be present here. Maybe there is a better way?
