( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have this sitting in my ~/bin
#! /usr/bin/perl -w # onchange file ... command # run command if any of the given files/directories # change use strict; use warnings; use File::Find; use Digest::MD5; my $Command = pop @ARGV; my $Files = [@ARGV]; my $Last_digest = ''; sub has_changed { my $files = shift; my $ctx = Digest::MD5->new; find(sub {$ctx->add($File::Find::name, (stat($_))[9])}, grep { +-e $_} @$files); my $digest = $ctx->digest; my $has_changed = $digest ne $Last_digest; $Last_digest = $digest; return($has_changed); }; while (1) { system($Command) if has_changed($Files); sleep 1; };

I have this in my .cshrc

alias testwatch "onchange Makefile.PL Makefile */*.pod */*.pm *.pm t t +est.pl 'clear; make test \!*'"

I then type % testwatch or % testwatch TEST_VERBOSE=1 in the root directory of any module I'm messing with. This won't work 100% of the time but hits that 80/20 spot for me.

I have a little todo list on an improved test monitor that I will, when some of that mythical free time comes along, implement. Now we have the lovely Test::Harness::Straps it's not even that difficult.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
