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

Integrating Test::Class with Vim

[ #36173 ]

One problem which has long frustrated me has been typing ',t' in my editor (vim) and having it try to run tests against a "non-test" file. With my improved test mappings, I had partially solved this:

au! FileType perl          :call PerlMappings()
au! BufRead,BufNewFile *.t :call PerlTestMappings()

However, now that we're integrating Test::Class, this fails because test classes have a .pm extension. I've now solved this. All test classes are in the Test:: namespace. I can now mark these as 'tests' with this new vim mapping:

au! FileType perl          :call PerlMappings()
au! BufRead,BufNewFile *.t :call PerlTestMappings()
au! FileType yaml          :call YAMLTestMappings()
au! BufNewFile,BufRead *.pm
    \ if getline(1) =~ 'package Test::' |
    \     call PerlTestMappings()       |
    \ else                              |
    \     call PerlMappings()           |
    \ endif

Of course, this requires the package statement to be on the first line, but this is a minor limitation for the benefit we gain.
