( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I just used a similar trick for a module I am going to release (hopefully) soon. To test it extensively I need a directory server handy, and a subtree in it to try a bunch of operations on it. Obviously I can't assume that the condition applies on every possible site the module will be installed in, so I put this code on the script headers:

use Test::More tests => 18 ; #18 my $fulltest = 18 ; my $shorttest = 2 ; BEGIN { use_ok('Net::LDAP::Simple') ; use_ok('Net::LDAP::Entry') ; } SKIP: { skip "doing local tests only",$fulltest-$shorttest unless $ENV{TEST_HOST} ; my $server = $ENV{TEST_HOST} || 'localhost' ; my $port = $ENV{TEST_PORT} || 389 ; my $base = $ENV{TEST_BASE} || 'ou=simple,o=test' ; my $binddn = $ENV{TEST_BINDDN} || 'cn=admin,o=test' ; my $bindpw = $ENV{TEST_BINDPW} || 'secret' ;

So, to run all the tests one should run them at least with something like TEST_HOST='' make test


The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
