Reading about the "joys" of testing -- and the addictive quality of knowing when you've got things working the way you expect, I just have to mention Devel::Cover, which I was alerted to in a TPJ article recently. Devel::Cover tracks how much of your code has been exercised by your tests and produces a fantastic HTML report that highlights in green and red areas that were tested and untested. In effect, it tests your tests. It includes:
- pod (if Pod::Coverage is installed)
It's still alpha but works reasonably well.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
