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

Hi,

I've been tasked on improving (or replacing) a custom test suite of bourne shell, c code, and cshell code.

I've been looking around and the Test::* modules appear that to provide what I'm looking for: a relatively simple framework to test arbitrary conditions that may or may not be related to perl itself. The output needs to be simple to the point of just having to eye ball it.

For example, testing a new version of a DBMS with a set of queries to determine if the particular version will cause problems.

My questions are:

1) has anyone done something similar with the Test::* modules?
2) is there something better to use? (I would prefer to use perl)
3) any issues I should be aware of

thanks

Jason L. Froebe

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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).
