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

I've had this code in one of my projects for a while, but after reading Re: What is YOUR Development Process? and point 2 in particular "Everything has an automated test that, at the bare minimum, verifies that it will compile." I figured it was worth sharing.

The code is designed to be dropped into a test/ directory which "make test" will then run.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # # Test that every perl file we have passes the syntax check. # # Steve # -- # $Id: perl-syntax.t,v 1.2 2006/06/13 13:26:00 steve Exp $ use strict; use File::Find; use Test::More qw( no_plan ); # # Find all the files beneath the current directory, # and call 'checkFile' with the name. # find( { wanted => \&checkFile, no_chdir => 1 }, '.' ); # # Check a file. # # If this is a perl file then call "perl -c $name", otherwise # return # sub checkFile { # The file. my $file = $File::Find::name; # We don't care about directories return if ( ! -f $file ); # `` is a false positive. return if ( $file =~ /$/ ); # See if it is a perl file. my $isPerl = 0; # Read the file. open( INPUT, "<", $file ); foreach my $line ( <INPUT> ) { if ( ( $line =~ /\/usr\/bin\/perl/ ) || ( $line =~ /\/usr\/local\/bin\/perl/ ) ) { $isPerl = 1; } } close( INPUT ); # # Return if it wasn't a perl file. # return if ( ! $isPerl ); # # Now run 'perl -c $file' to see if we pass the syntax # check # my $retval = system( "perl -c $file 2>/dev/null >/dev/null" ); is( $retval, 0, "Perl file passes our syntax check: $file" ); }

In reply to Perl test - Make sure all perl files will compile by skx

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
