As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 This is the perl test library. To run the test suite, just type './TEST'
2 or 'make test' from the build directory above t/. See also the section
3 "Special Make Test Targets" in pod/perlhack.pod to learn about other
4 specific test commands.
6 To add new tests, just look at the current tests and do likewise.
7 The library t/test.pl provides some utility functions that you can use
8 in most tests, except in the most basic ones.
10 If a test fails, run it by itself to see if it prints any informative
11 diagnostics. If not, modify the test to print informative diagnostics.
12 If you put out extra lines with a '#' character on the front, you don't
13 have to worry about removing the extra print statements later since TEST
14 ignores lines beginning with '#'.
16 If you know that Perl is basically working but expect that some tests
17 will fail, you may want to use Test::Harness thusly:
18 cd t
19 ./perl harness
20 This method pinpoints failed tests automatically.
22 If you come up with new tests, please submit them to
25 Tests in the t/base/ directory ought to be runnable with plain miniperl.
26 That is, they should not require Config.pm nor should they require any
27 extensions to have been built. TEST will abort if any tests in the
28 t/base/ directory fail.
30 Tests in the t/comp/, t/cmd/, t/run/, t/io/, t/op/ and t/uni/ directories
31 should also be runnable by miniperl and not require Config.pm, but
32 failures to comply will not cause TEST to abort like for t/base/.
34 Tests in t/perf/ are designed to test performance and optimisations,
35 and also contain additional tools and files designed to run outside
36 of the test suite
