in reply to Autogenerate test scripts for your perl modules..

FYI...

I haven't tried this, but from skimming it (and referencing the perldocs) It doesn't appear that this won't accutally work with the most recent (ie: only) standalone release of Test::More (/MSCHWERN/Test-More-0.08) ... I'm guessing it's ment to work with the copy that comes with /JHI/perl-5.8.0 (v0.45)

    I used what was on the machine:
    [07:34:23 brad]$ perl -MTest::More -e 'print "Perl: $] Test::More: $Te +st::More::VERSION\n";' Perl: 5.006001 Test::More: 0.46

    I was also browsing the docs on the Test::* modules on perldoc.org and it matched up. Are there two modules with the same name space?

      Not so much differnt modules as different versions depending on what distrobution it was installed in.

      It's not uncommon -- especially when modules get rolled into the standared "perl" distrobution -- but normally the standalone distributions are still maintained and have the latest greatest features (ie: CPAN comes with perl, but you don't want to have to upgrade perl everytime you want the latest improvements to CPAN.)

      Test::More is a little unusual in that it has been included in a wide variety distributions -- everything from Wx to Palm::Progect to perl-5.8.0.

      Looking a little deeper right now, it looks like Test::More got rolled into the Test::Simple, and that's the new "definitive" distribution.
