Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Things I Want In Tests

[ #34929 ]
  • I want Test::Builder to support the new YAML diagnostic syntax.
  • I want deferred plans. So that I can specify my own plan count at the end of a test run, but not just use 'no_plan'.
  • I want test counts to each test program can start with [233/340] so you can see your test suite progress.
  • I want pre- and post- test program hooks (we already have pre- and post- test suite hooks)

The beauty of my wish list is that I can make those last two happen.

  • I want Test::Builder to support the new YAML diagnostic syntax.

    I've done a really nasty hacky, bodge of Test::More that sort of supports diagnostics:

    Test::More::Diagnostic [cpan.org]

    It highlights what I believe is a small design flaw in the YAML blocks: if you want to process a test result and its associated block as an atom you have to introduce a delay into the processing pipeline - because having seen a test you don't know if the next thing is going to be a YAML block or another test.

    TAP::Formatter::Te [cpan.org]

  • You mean like

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use strict;
    use MyTestLibrary 'prehook';
    use Test::More tests => 1234;

    (tests)

    END {
            MyTestLibrary->posthook;
    }
