in thread using Test::* modules for generic testing of non perl stuff?

I understand where you're coming from now. I *think* the Test::* should work okay as long as I code a pass/fail. What I do like is the fact that the Test::* are already built and are relatively simple to use. I agree that depending on what I'm testing, I might have to shoehorn it.

I guess I'm looking for reasons NOT to use it.. At this point, I see only that some extra coding of the test may only need to be done.. But since I've fallen for too good to be true with some perl modules on cpan before (fits my need but no maintainer, doesn't fit my need exactly but maintainer goes ballistic when I submit a patch extending it without getting permission first from the maintainer to modify the module in the first place for my own use, etc.), I'm skeptical
