Ken,

Your points on Test::Output are well taken. I was experimenting with that module and did get some results via sterr_is and stdout_is.

The 'is' statement only evaluates a return, so your patterns using Test::Output are much more useful in this context.

What I really need out of the test suite is code coverage. I pulled down your code and ran the tests. I tried to run something like:

$ perl -MDevel::Cover pm_script_testing.pl $ cover
I was able to spit out some code coverage numbers. I am going to try spend some time on this path and see I can get it to fly on my test script. But I need to dig in a little more and see if Test::Output aligns with Devel::Cover like I hope it does.
