Hi stevieb, thanks for your answer! This looks really good and I tried to integrate this into my code. Yet I still have problems...

I have a subroutine in my program called like this:
sub search_ldap { + + my ( $self, $ldap ) = @_; # get uid, email, ecufreeze, cnum, itimaccess from LDAP report LOG_INFO, "Reading from Ldap"; unless ( $ldap->searchUser( filter => '(uid=*)', attributes => "freeze uid dn cnum emai +l" ) ) { report LOG_ERROR, "Can not list user from LDAP: " . $ldap->get +Error(); exit 0; } return $ldap; }
In this case $ldap is a Utils::Ldap::CompanyLdap object. when calling $ldap->searchUser this object writes the users into itself. So with the searchUser call, the object itself is altered.

What I tried:
my $m = Mock::Sub->new; my $ldap = Utils::Ldap::CompanyLdap->new; + + + my $mocked_sub = $m->mock( 'Utils::Ldap::CompanyLdap::searchUser' ); # This is actually a Utils::Ldap::CompanyLdap-Object I copied via Data +::Dumper my $return_value = bless ( ... ); $mocked_sub->return_value($return_value); # cache is an instance of my own object + ok( $cache->search_ldap($my_ldap) ); ok( $cache->read_all_userids($my_ldap) ); is $mocked_sub->called, 1, "searchUser() called ok";
I was hoping that be putting the object the way I want it to into my return value, the solution would work. The thing is, I noticed searchUser doesn't really return anything, it only appends to the object-instance. So Mock::Sub returns the right thing, but the code continues to work with the old ldap-object. Any Ideas how to solve this?

Greetings and thanks for your insights so far,

If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
